《From YuHang Rong Design Library Research Program on Wood Materials of Traditional Chinese Handicraft Materials》：it was Sponsored by Ugan concept brand. Ugan concept exclusively supports the From Yuhang Rong Design Library to study the future development of wood materials in human life and promote the application of Chiness traditional handicraft materials——wood materials to test the various plasticity of imaginative wood materials.
From YuHang Rong Design Library#——traditional technology regeneration
“From YuHang Rong Design Library” is the first non-profit traditional materials research library in China.The library was founded by the founder Zhang Lei, a concept of "traditional craft rebirth". The library focuses on the research and deconstruction of Chinese traditional handicraft materials and Chinese traditional craftsmanship, and put them into writing for the reference of designers and artists continually.
In the long river of Chinese traditional culture, wood has the charm of everlasting prosperity.The wood cotains too many people's feelings. The affinity and the sense of security given to the Chinese is irreplaceable.Tree turning into wood, it is an instinctive continuation.in the most primitive aesthetic thinking instinct, it is the continuation of nature, and it is the living ecology.
Ugan concept respects the natural expression of material as a designer floor brand with its designing concept of“presenting wood’s beauty by its nature”. The brand lead the beauty of life power growing between rings, the beauty of the incomplete of naps and gaps on the wood, and the beauty of original simplicity of aged wood to indoor to Convey the aesthetics of Chinese wood to people.
Perhaps times is changing,and the pace of industrialization has not stopped. The rise of steel, cement and chemical materials has also succeeded in replacing wood. However, Ugan concept hoped that the they can use the commonweal activity, 《From Yuhang Rong Design Library" Chinese traditional Handicraft Materials Research Program》，to extend the more wood forms, so that the aesthetic sense of "wood" as the leading position can be understood by more people.
Ugan concept hopes that the "life" can continue, perhaps the floor is just a beginning..
In the dissemination of traditional culture, Ugan concept and Rong Design Library happen to coincide. The project traces the wood material itself to carry on the construction and the analysis. With the traditional craft union, it extends the better design, and promotes the continuation of traditional culture and the development of contemporary Chinese design. We hoped that it can influence several generations and even more people in the future.
Presentation of the first stage of the study results
01 Cemical changes
Coloring / Surface treatment
imber can take on different colors, maybe there are joys, sorrows and sorrows.
Wood also have scars, but we can make her smile in another way.
03 Old wood reuse
The wood grows old in the dust of the years, but not that
04 wood cutting
We can use the softest knife to restore the truest texture of wood.
05 Surface modeling
Hand / Solid / Tactile / Texture / Undulation
The texture of wood is the trace of time.
06 Surface oil
Moisture-proof / Coloring
I can keep her face forever.
Coloring / Surface treatment / Layering
The dark can make her more glamorous.
08 Wood tenon
ortise / Crack repair / Cegularity
Traditional techniques can make traditional materials more artistic
09 Wood floor connection
Splicing / Machine slotting
Project name:《From YuHang Rong Design Library Research Program on Wood Materials of Traditional Chinese Handicraft Materials》：
Project time: 2018-2022
阶段一：（2018年）木材料在我们生活中的角色扮演 ，并且对木材料进行第一次浅尝理解 ；
Stage one: (2018) the role of wood materials in our lives, and for the first time to understand wood materials;
Stage two: (2019-2020) expanding the practicability of wood material, Rong library will take wood material as the main line to carry on the deep understanding on the system including color,the pattern, the structure, the function and so on and to deconstructe and research longitudinally of Ugan concept wood material craft;
Stage 3: (2021-2022)Ugan concept provide technical support for tests that the more new technology is blended in the early production technology research successfully, such as wood fumigation, coloring bending and other new technology research and development.
