For Salone di Mobile 2018, Harmony Art and our R&D Department launched the “Our Ancestor” series of sculpture designs, inspired by Michelangelo’s paintings, and the totem poles and sculptures were all columnar pieces. Designer also borrowed from the primitive totem tribal totem. Totem is the carrier for recording gods and is the earliest cultural phenomenon in human history. It reflects the worship of nature by ancient primitive tribes. Through graphically recording this ancient way of communication, it expresses and places a belief, HWCD’s sculptures reinterpreted the original totem poles, abstracting more innovative element.
The theme of the sculpture works perfectly in tune with the style of Fauvism. The creators use "Fauvism" as their overall style of creation. While highlighting the outline of the rough outline of the sculpture, they also use neat geometric blocks as elements to give new soul and vitality to the work and reshape our acknowledge of the ancestral physical relationship.
"Our Ancestors" has been designed to create a strong visual effect. Its shape is rearranged with Adam's ribs and Eve's body contours as design elements. In creative expression and design language, the creator re-interprets the concrete body parts and ribs to create abstract geometric figures and freely combine them to form the design of the totem pole. This also expresses the integration and continuation of a kind of vitality, and shows the relationship between mutual tolerance and development.
Sculptures can be freely combined to present different human forms. The intention of the creator is also considered about the balance between art and commercial value. Taking into account the transformation and use of the design, this free combination also allows the artwork itself to be more flexible in some way and can be adapted to the site's needs.
As the adverse impact of waste materials on the environment has gradually become the focus of global attention, we have begun to explore the potential of recycling and recycling of used materials, and apply it to sculpture design. Inspired by the original and frantic tribal culture, it is also the desire to return to the original source, using very simple shapes to create the most natural beauty of the material.
The sculptural design in this exhibition uses recycled cotton material (cottoncrete). The British new material artist Jake Solomon explains that the inspiration for developing this new type of material was derived from papercrete and fundamentally solved the material Weight and environmental issues.
Cotton is a kind of seed fiber. Cotton fiber can be used to make a variety of fabrics. Cotton fabrics are resistant to abrasion and can be washed and ironed at high temperatures. The cottoncrete used in this sculptural design is a new material based on the inspiration of paper concrete. It is an environmentally friendly recycled material made from recycled lard and cement waste from textile lint and bronze foundries. The final product is a lightweight concrete that, after careful grinding, exhibits a brushed cotton texture that was originally soft and cold and soft and tactile.
Cotton concrete is a kind of fiber cement that is made by adding waste cotton into pulp and adding Portland cement. Cotton concrete is sturdy, lightweight, insulated, and hopefully becomes a new type of environmentally friendly building material. This time, for Totem's understanding, the creator finds it best suited to express the best material choices for ancestors and totems.
In line with the pursuit of environmental protection, innovation, nature, and regeneration, HWCD collaborated with British material artist Solomon & Wu and luxury wallpaper maker Fromental to create the immersive experience exhibition space Meandros of Our Ancestors.
In this era of mutual benefit and innovation, HWCD uses innovative and ingenious designs to create a better lifestyle and artistic value, hopes to present it to the audience through the Milan Design Week in a manner full of Brazilian style and returning to its origin. The design of the Milan exhibition Meandros will meet with you at the Harmony Art Gallery in July.
