This year, Neri&Hu was appointed as the "Guests of Honour" and installation designer for the 2019 Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. The installation, called The Unfolding Village, was exhibited from February 5th to the 9th and attracted large crowds of design enthusiasts.


由如恩设计策展的“婉转街巷,变迁村落” -- 2019年斯德哥尔摩家具与灯具展荣誉主宾装置设计,已于2019年2月5日至9日在斯德哥尔摩展出。本次展览共吸引来自全球各地的百万名设计爱好者前往参观。


Neri&Hu's design was featured in Dezeen, Wallpaper*, Archdaily, TL mag, and many other publications with great reviews as one of the best installations ever designed by the "Guests of Honour".


本次荣誉主宾装置设计受到了全世界多家建筑与设计主流媒体报道,包括archdaily, dezeen, wallpaper*, TL mag等等,同时被业界人士誉为斯德哥尔摩家具灯具展有史以来最精彩的一次荣誉主宾展览。


For the installation this year, Neri&Hu departed from convention; which normally focuses only on product designs. Neri&Hu’s installation links the objects and products on display to the pressing social issue unique to China.


作为此届斯德哥尔摩家具与灯具展的荣誉主宾,如恩希望能够脱离传统家具展只专注于展陈产品的固有模式,着重体现展览空间和参展产品的内在的紧密联系,以此反映出中国社会在某些方面所面临的独特问题。


Neri&Hu is concerned with the Traditional Chinese villages and culture disappearing at an alarming rate. This impacts the notion of community, family, and roots. Many of Neri&Hu’s product designs are centered on the notions of nostalgia, dwelling, home, family, and the individual’s relationship within a collective. Neri&Hu proposed an installation that represents the spirit of the traditional village.​


近年来,如恩致力于研究中国逐渐消逝的村落和乡村文化,这一令人担忧的趋势极大地影响了人们对社群、家庭和文化根源的传统认知。 如恩的许多产品设计都以“怀旧”、“居所”、“家”、“家庭”以及“个人与社群的关系”为灵感,如恩希望设计一个能够代表和展现传统中式村落文化精髓的装置空间。


Inspired by the alleyways and street life of clan-based villages, the exhibition layout is a sinuous alleyway that folds & unfolds to create lanes & layers of space revealed slowly to visitors.


本次装置空间的设计灵感来源于中国传统氏族村落中的街巷与生活场景,展览的空间布局由一条连续迂回的“窄巷”贯穿而成,时而平铺直叙,时而又蜿蜒曲折,含蓄地引导着参观者将层层空间逐一揭开。


The profile & form takes on the reading of an abstracted-pitched roof which represents the home. When repeated and connected the rows form a "village". Neri&Hu products (furniture, lighting, and accessories) are curated and placed within the village which is built with local timber from Sweden.


装置空间的立面形式采用抽象化的斜屋檐,象征着“家”;立面经重复和延伸后又构成了“家”的聚合––“村落”。通过精心的策划,如恩设计的产品(家具,灯具和配饰)陈列在连续蜿蜒的“窄巷”内,装置空间所采用的材料均选用瑞典当地的木材。


Screens, built in millwork, windows and shutters create unexpected moments of encounter.


隔栅、内装木艺、窗户和百叶门窗为穿梭其中的参观者制造出许多意料之外的邂逅。


The Chinese notion of "fiction" is actually derived from the term "small talk" originating from the alleys and streets. The spatial device of the alley creates a quirky tableau for the objects while inviting the subversive behaviors of gossip, voyeurism, and eavesdropping amongst fair visitors.


汉语中的“小说”一词本源于街头巷末的“闲聊”。“街巷”这一特殊空间为展品的陈设提供了怪诞有趣的戏剧性场景,逗引着人们在观展时自发地窃语、盗听、窥探,为展览制造生动的故事性和情趣。
