家具語錄精選集


汽車天天折舊
家具年年增值~林東陽


Fine Furniture is Good Investment
買好家具是聰明投資


The world’s finest furniture will turn your house into a home
(世上
好家具使你的房子變成溫暖的家


“ A chair is not a chair until some one is sitting in it ” ~Hans Wegner
(椅子,坐上去舒適才算數)


" The chair does not exist. The good chair is a task one is never completely done with. "
~Hans Wegner


"The chair is the thing that is probably closest to people", explains Wegner.   " So it’s important that its detailing is in order ".


" A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles. " ~Retrieved from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Wegner


" A piece of furniture must never have a back. It must cohere: One should not be able to tell where it begins and where it ends. You experience furniture from every angle and it must stand up to being seen from all sides." ~Hans J. Wegner


" Many foreigners have asked me how we made the Danish style. And I've answered that it...was rather a continuous process of purification, and for me of simplification, to cut down to the simplest possible elements of four legs, a seat and combined top rail and arm rest. " ~Hans Wegner


Design should appeal to all senses not just visible


"One of my friends told me about the difference between northern and southern European approaches to furniture - so to speak. If an Italian architect sees a chair he will sit down and watch women. If a Danish architect sees a chair he will turn it upside down to see how it looks underneath. The ladies will have to wait their turn to be scrutinized." ~From the book :Poul Kjærholm by Poul Erik, Tøjner, Louisisana Museum of Modern Art, in the series Danish Designers.
(我的一位朋友告訴我關於北歐和南歐人看待家具的差異-可以這麼說:意大利建築師看到一把椅子,他會自己坐下來,然後看看站在一旁的女性;而丹麥建築師,當他看到椅子,則是把它倒轉過來,端看椅子底部,細看之後再請女士就坐。)


Kjærholm’s idiom and uncompromising search for a minimalist ideal has resulted in a collection of universal and timeless classics, a fact that is emphasised by the continued popularity of his works to this day.


Poul Kjaerholm worked by a simple rule: “The quality of a design lies in the details. If they are anything other than impeccable, you might as well give it up.” This uncompromising attitude and his sublime approach to the materials are just two of the reasons why Kjaerholm ranks among the all-time greatest designers. ~Republic of Fritz Hansen:A tribute to Kjaerholm from beloved icons to new launches
(設計品質在於細部,假使不能做到無懈可擊,那你最好放棄。不妥協的態度及以崇高方式對待材料,正是Kjaerholm 成就最偉大設計師的原因)


" I am trying to express the very language of the materials themselves." ~Poul Kjærholm


A chair is not a chair if you can't sit on it, or if it's not comfortable ~Designer Henri Davies on the lyrical beauty of Poul Kjaerholm's design classic....


« A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous... » ~Ludwig Mies van der Rohe


“If you do not push the material to its limits, your design ends up looking like everyone else’s. Exciting things only begin to happen when you demand the impossible of the material.” ~Christina Strand


Wegner on the creation of Danish Modern


“The philosophy was not to make the process of work more complicated than necessary, but to show what we were able to do with our hands: to try to make the material come alive, to give it a sense of spirit, to make our works look so natural that one could conceive of them in that form only and in no other.”


“It’s a lifelong endeavor to understand the nature of materials. Wood is a part of almost all my designs.”


“When you stand with the material in your hands, everything becomes form and construction, and in fact the whole process of work becomes obvious.”


“A construction must be both neat and right. But making it requires that you know why it looks as it does, for otherwise, you don’t make it.”


“But you have to have grown up with wood to understand it, and you need a feel it to use it correctly.”


“More than anything else, a good construction can tell a story about the idea embodied in a design.”


“The chair is the thing that is probably closest to people. So it is important that its detailing is in order. I feel details as much as I see them. That’s what happens in a furniture shop. People touch the furniture, they see with their hands. Points of contact are a large part of the experience.”


“When you buy a piece of furniture, turn it upside down. If the bottom is in order, the whole piece probably is ─ and vice versa.”


“It was really nothing of the sort. It was rather a continuous process of purification, and for me of simplification, to cut down to the simplest possible elements of four legs, a seat and combined top rail and armrest.” Wegner on the creation of Danish Modern.
