「工業品」,是一種量產品為了符合經濟效益,任何的設計都是以量化、拆解、好運送功能取向為目標;而「工藝品」,通常被界定限定少量、精緻手工,甚至藝術收藏等心靈層面不具像的感受。而IKEA是個全球化的品牌,同時也是全球工業量化的指標性品牌,與台灣地方傳統的精緻工藝,相互成了明顯的對比。

GloballyLocal系列,希望藉由已大量銷售至全球的IKEA代表性產品做為工藝的創作平台,與台灣地方的傳統工藝師做為結合;低價功能性產品加上台灣獨一無二的傳統精緻工藝,如薄胎、細銀、玻璃藝術、漆藝、傳統木雕等,再以故事性的方式帶入冰冷的工業品,結合台灣工藝後,呈現出更深厚的人文內涵。通行世界的IKEA餐椅,搭配描繪細緻的漆藝;基本款方桌一角,成了觀音乘龍的木雕;標準工作燈的燈罩,往內瞧見双龍搶珠的競技,打開燈光後,更感受到光影錯綜的層次效果。

在巧妙的轉化結合中,台灣獨特的工藝文化彷彿畫龍點睛似的從全球化的產品中跳脫,在地/全球化、質/量等議題,開始產生更細膩的內容層次,以及新的看待基準,也重新定義與打破了工藝與工業的圍籬與刻板印象。






An “Industrial” product is to create an object which could result in the largesteconomical benefits possible, hence such objects are designed in a way which could be mass produced, modular, and efficient in transportation; whereas a “craft” product are usually defined as objects handmade in limited amounts with extremely delicate details, or even be related to invisible, sometimes spiritual, values such as the prestige of arts collection or the nostalgic thoughts revoked upon encountering such products.

IKEA is known as a global brand and plays a key role behind the mass produced furniture market, yet people never stop and ask themselves, whether they’ve lost their own steps amidst such rush of globalization; and at the same time, IKEA, an exemplary globalized industrial brand, has created a huge contrast against the sophisticated craftsmanship of local Taiwanese traditions.

The “GloballyLocal” series is created in hopes of combining Taiwanese traditional crafts masters with IKEA, letting local craftsmen to work on the industrial products manufactured by IKEA and showcase Taiwanese traditional crafts. Low cost and functional products of IKEA are enhanced with unique and delicate Taiwanese crafts such as traditional carpentry, silversmith, glass art, etc.

Global brand IKEA meets Taiwanese crafts, generating a new meaning for its modern-style objects. A skillfully lacquered and decorated chair loses its everyday dullness. A typical IKEA table leg is covered with a wood-carved decoration depicting the deity of protection, Guan-Yi, riding a dragon. An ordinary lampshade gets a transparent porcelain cover with a pattern inside portraying a mythical battlefield of tigers and dragons – which is brought to life when the light is switched on. A new lampshade for a desk light turns a plain light bulb into a mysterious fireball, adding stories to dull industrial products, as well as enriching Taiwanese crafts culture while also helping such global products to stand out from the crowd, therefore redefining the stereotype and breaking boundaries of crafts and industrial products.
