路得设计 | 四川眉山东坡足道明星店
The project is located in Meishan,China,which is the hometown of Three Sus.Three Sus refers to Su Xun,Su Shi and Suzhe,who are very famous literators in Song dynasty.Among them,Sus Shi,who is also known as Su Dongpo,is well known and popular in particular.Carrying forward Su Dongpo's culture and sharing ancient Chinese regimen are the core philosophy of this foot spa,and the interior space is also built based on Dongpo culture.
In the lobby,the background of front desk is the famous painting called "Shu Dongpo Reciting in Red Cliff".In the painting,Su Dongpo is travelling in Red Cliff by boat with his friends on a moonlit night.His hat belt and beard have been blown by the breeze,showing a sense of chic and self-satisfaction.The painting conveyed that what Su Dongpo admires are breeze off the river and the moon in between mountains,which are endless treasure of nature.
On the left,there are traditional Chinese lattice window patterns made of rust plate.Some stones are placed on the lattice at random,which is a modern expression of traditional elements.The whole project adopts this new Chinese style to expresses Dongpo culture,in which the new and old are combined in a balanced way.Thus,it turns out to be a special and unique design.
When it comes to staircase rest area,plenty of plaques with cultural significance of Dongpo have fully covered the space.The plaques have different calligraphy types but all convey Dongpo culture,adding a rich cultural heritage to the space.
Both the low-key material and color,as well as the transparent and flexible lighting design are based on Dongpo culture,such as the quiet tea room,scrolls,calligraphy on Su Dongpo's poems,and three jars which stand for Three Sus.All these elements enhance each other's beauty and enrich the overall cultural atmosphere.While the lighting design has both the quietness of classical Chinese lantern and the elegance of moonlight in lotus pond,the soft and shaded light and shadow in the foot spa room can soothe the body and mind of the visitors.Other details like root carvings,trees,screens and even stone lion statues are exquisite in simplicity,showing the designer's ingenuity in design.
Su Dongpo once said: "Without meat is thin,without bamboo is vulgar." Su loves bamboo a lot in his life.So,the designer brought bamboo elements into the space.Under the lighting effect of modern concept,the designer built a scene that bamboos are hidden behind the wall,creating a classical aesthetic and natural atmosphere.
Su Dongpo had a profound opinion that " A peaceful mind is the only best way of recovery".In this project,the new Chinese style chosen by the designer is not implanted ponderously but revealed from culture.Only in this way can the design really withstand fickleness of the world and win the inner peace.
