NANCHOW HANDMADE
CEMENT TILE
RETILE-M: NOO6 - XIANG CHENG

“XIANG CHENG香承”是“RETILE”系列的第六號產品,也是設計師對水泥花磚原材料再生利用的首次嘗試。在水泥花磚生產過程中會產生多余的材料,有的是打樣或備料時的配色余料,有的是生產中剩余的漿料。由于水泥的材料特性,這些材料會因長時間未使用而失去活性,從而無法再用于生產。在余料的基礎上,見南花材料實驗室的技術人員通過加入新的材料與配比實驗,將其轉化為性能穩定可作造型的混凝土冷鑄材料。

“XIANG CHENG-incense holder” is the sixth product in the “RETILE” series, and is also the designer’s first attempt to reuse the raw materials of cement tiles. When we prepare materials for the production of cement tiles or samples, there are always excess materials. Due to the characteristics of cement, if these materials leave unused for a period of time, they will become inactivated and cannot be used for production any more. In NANCHOW Material Lab, the technicians reformed these materials by adding new materials and experiments to transmute them to concrete chill-casting materials with stable performance.

長條香灰托由改良后的余料在模具中澆鑄而成,水泥花磚原材料的性能與手工注漿工藝決定了產品表面質感細膩,帶有極少的自然孔洞。無機礦物顏料賦予其安靜的啞光色彩。

The long ash holder is cast in the mould with the improved materials. Due to the characteristics of the cement tile materials and the technics of manual grouting, the surface of the cement holder is very exquisite with some natural pores. Its colour is quite and matte because of the inorganic mineral pigment.

水泥與金屬材質相結合,具溫柔安靜氣質的長條香灰托與具未來感的極簡金屬造型,聯合賦予香承新的現代美學。圓環香插的設計如宇宙中的星辰,給點燃線香的時刻深遠的儀式感與詩意。

The combination of cement and metal endows the incense holder with new modern aesthetics. The design of the ring is like the star of the universe, make the moment of incense burning more profound ceremonial and poetic.

圓環香插還是有趣的滅香器,將燃燒的線香慢速地從中取出,線香即可熄滅。長條香灰托、圓環香插以及香灰圓盤三個組件可靈活搭配使用。線香的呈現方式可立、可斜、可平,在有限的范圍內,給香承增添一絲趣味。

The ring is also one special incense extinguisher. When you get the incense stick out from the ring slowly, the incense could extinguish immediately. The long ash holder, ring and ash disk could be collocated flexibly to show the incense stick in different ways, which makes the incense holder more interesting.
