wong chuk hang
Hong Kong

 

 

Our old Wong Chuk Hang showroom was set in the neighbourhood of an emerging art scene in the south of Hong Kong island. The whole building was constructed in the 70's as a clock factory. After conversion, the purified industrial space allows our simple lined and Ming style Chinese furniture to be displayed with a clean backdrop.

Regrettably, the building's demolition in 2017/18 compelled us to move - this time back to the north shore of Hong Kong island.

香港黄竹坑

 

 

我们在黄竹坑的旧展廊,坐落于香港岛南部,是一个活泼新晋的艺术区域。整个建筑物以前是一家时钟工厂。从这工业空间改造的宽宏展廊让我们的家具可以大方展示。

但由于这建筑物会在 2017/18 年间拆卸改建,所以我们被迫再次搬迁 - 这次搬回香港岛北岸的商业区。

We designed this extendable dining table and chair set in year 2000 - TA 23, CH 15A and CH 15B. The stretchers are meant to be crisp and clean, conveying relative modernity out of clear Chinese forms.

..

我们早于 2000 年就设计了这个拉开餐台组合 - 餐台 TA 23,扶手椅 CH 15A 与 靠背椅 CH 15B。最重要的特点是台面板与坐板下的撑子,线条明快干净,从标准的明式形态中带出现代感觉。

The sideboard, CA 80, is a showcase of pure simplicity. Essentially just a wooden block, highlighted by the nicely hand crafted seams and shut lines - and of course the subtle wood grains revealed through the medium brown toned finish.

..

餐柜 CA 80 是纯净简单家具的代表作。基本上只是一个大型木造方块,以接线和缝边为唯一修饰 - 当然也包括精细涂漆下显露的漂亮实木纹理。

CH 33, similar to CH 6, is of a classic Ming style south official's hat armchair form. A world of complexity to be explored -  see with the lacquered finish, how the wood grains are revealed or hidden across various wooden members facing the light source at different angles.

..

CH 33, 类似 CH 6, 是中国明式家具的经典南官帽椅款色。上漆的原因令复杂多变的面貌等着我们发现 - 看木纹或清楚或隐藏,全因为跟光源的角度有所不同。

The interior of our cabinets deserve to be displayed openly - in the case here showing how our shelves are made to be strong and sturdy, supporting even an array of heavy coffee table books without losing composure.

..

我们的柜内格都值得打开来展示 - 由于所有层板的结构都是精密而坚固,所以尽管像这柜内放置了大量的厚重书籍后仍能保持平直。

The design of table TA 1 originates from a piece of antique side table referenced from renowned Ming Chinese furniture scholar Huang Shi Xiang's book - Classical Chinese Furniture. He would not have imagined how the form has a whole new character when finely lacquered and in a dark brown tone.

..

条桌 TA 1 的设计是源于中国著名明式家具学者黄世襄先生所著的 ”明式家具珍赏“内的其中一个款色。他可能没有想到那个古董的面貌可以经过重新演绎与上漆后能呈现大相径庭的气质。

When finished in a Light brown tone, the splay legged CA 83 retains more of the typical mood of a classical Ming style cabinet. Observe the specially selected pair of door panels.
