Please let us introduce you to the current showroom cum office at Bonham Strand West, Sheung Wan of Hong Kong. It is right in the heart of the historic district famous for its dried seafood trade. Acting as a cosy atelier, it facilitates collaboration with clients on bespoke projects, as well as the research and development of new furniture design features.

香港文咸西街

 

来让我门介绍明堂家具现于上环文咸西街上的迷你展廊。刚好位处著名中外的海味干货批发区域的中心。这其实更像一个工作坊,便利我们做开发并跟客户协作时会面的宁静空间。

 

当点按每件家具编码时会显示一个新页面,列出家具的规格,标准价钱与陈列室项目的价钱。

Experimental and crafting work is performed on no other but our elegant table TA 45. This one is crafted out of very rare Burmese Chicken Wing wood, making it possibly one of the most precious working tables in the world. Modern Ming style cabinet CA 82 comes in handy as a hidden library for all the furniture design and materials reference books. Also shown is the solid burl wood topped stool SL 2. Placed on the floor is our old store sign in Chinese characters, used from year 2000. 

..

测试与手作是在最适合不过的 TA 45 书台上进行。这样品是用现时已在市场上绝迹的珍贵缅甸鸡翅木所造的。所以这可能是世界上其中一张最稀有的工作台了。在旁的现代明式柜 CA 82 把所有的设计与家具参考书籍整洁收纳其中。还看到的是影木座板的古凳 SL 2. 放在角落的是我们从 2000 年使用至今的中文名招牌。

A cultured air of finesse is achieved in the desk area with desk TA 62, filing cabinet CA 67 and a bespoke version of SL 5 stool.

在另一边我们用以下家具编织出一个灵巧文雅的空间:写字台 TA 62, 文件柜 CA 67 和一件专门特造的 SL 5 凳子.

Coffee table LT 10, with its fine finish, deserves to be appreciated up close. See the crispness of the arrangement in the horse hoof feet. 

..

涂漆精美的咖啡台 LT 10 值得近距离欣赏。请细看马蹄脚爽快清新的线条。

Only in looking close at the wood frame details of display cabinet CA 45 does one recognise the hidden beauty of our signature lacquered fine finish. The concave moulding and concave edges on two sides of a wooden member has a fine smoothness achieved through thorough finishing. With reflecting light they amplify the sculpted character of the surfaces. When the viewing angle is changed they may vary from the look of opaque black lacquer to transparent dark brown lacquer enabling a full show of the wood grains underneath.

..

只有靠近观察木方细微处才看领略展示柜 CA 45 的精细涂漆若隐若现的奥妙之处。每一个木方的微弯表面与两旁边线都经过无数的涂漆工序才达到丝滑的效果。经反照的光泽更能显现其立体感。当改变欣赏角度,柜子好像从一件黑漆家具变为一件能清晰看到木材木纹的清漆家具。

With its unique bulging surface the mirror AC 5 is equally at home both hung on the wall or just rested casually on the floor.

Shelf SH 4 has an air of pure candour that is suitable for a wide variety of interiors, with its right balance of simplicity and Chinese railing design element. Differing from most mass produced shelves, realise how each of the components are joined together through immaculate mitre joints.

..

书架 SH 4 的醇厚率直味道让它适合不同类型的室内风格,其中式围栏与素净外观的平衡恰到好处。有别于一般量产的书架,请细看照片上每个部件都是用 45 度角榫精准的连接起来。

Console table TA 54 as a gem of elegance is our design classic that never fades away.

Chair CH 30 is an abstraction of the mood of classic Chinese Ming style South Official's Hat armchair, if not the more casual Rose Chair in its back to armrest ratio. An unfussy charm that emanates quietly.

..

CH 30 椅子是从传统明式南官帽椅演化而成的抽象版本,但从它的靠背与扶手高度比例来说可能更像源于比较小巧的玫瑰椅。静静散发出优雅而不落俗套。

Table TA 1120E started its journey as a design for personal use, when we found nothing in the market that fits our need for a small side table. The functions come first in our design considerations, but aesthetics just fall in place neatly. It proved to be an extremely versatile table. 

..

黄铜小圆台 TA 1120E 本来是我们设计为自用而已,因为市场上找不着适合我们要求的现成品。设计的考虑是功能为先,当这完善后外观美感便油然而生。这台不负所托,是一件功能多端的家具。

The cross legged bench LT 38 looks impeccably modern, but its gene and blood is Chinese - as is revealed in its structural design. The open pored and ebonized natural finish is chosen for its subdued air of presence.

..

拥有交叉脚的板凳 LT 38 外观极之现代,但它留着的血脉却是中式 - 特别是它的结构组织。低修饰感觉并保留木材细孔眼的染炭黑色涂漆让板凳带出温文气派。

Our furniture is original, each piece is uniquely hand made, more so when unorthodox materials are specially chosen. Shown below are photos showing how we work with our hands at the atelier on vegetable tanned leather as well as shagreen. This brings personal touch to a whole new level. We will cover more with a future detailed story.

..

我门每一件家具都是新颖,全手工打造,用上非一般质材时更是其中的表表者。以下照片显示我们怎样在香港工作坊亲自细心处理植鞣皮革与魔鬼鱼皮。这让家具的独有个人风格达致更高里程碑。我门将会在不久以后的专门报道上详加描述。
