A Moonlit, Floral Passage into the Lunar New Year!

Literati shan shui painting is one of the most influential studies within the canon of Chinese art. Showcasing nature through an individual, rather than literal, perspective, the details in these painting reflect the artist’s desires through intuitive composition.

These window designs are inspired by the famed gardens in Jiangnan, specifically the “entryway to the moon grotto” style. The circular door is full, flawless and harmonious like the full moon. The design also envisions a place on earth as aspirational as the Nine Heavens.

Framing the moon entryway are traditional Chinese motifs. This element draws from the “floral window” craft used in traditional Chinese gardens. The linear construction of the frame and the moon entryway create juxtapositions of round and square, reality and illusion.

The relationship between moon entryway and floral window creates a frame that in shan shui painting is referred to as “framed scenery”. Liuligongfang brings this vision to our South Coast Plaza storefront display for an impactful and visually dynamic presentation. This window draws the eye to Liuligongfang’s latest Year of the Pig collection and acts as a guide into our showroom store.

To further highlight the collection, the entire display is wrapped in matte fabric. Mirroring the colors from the customer favorite hand-painted peonies found throughout our store, the effect conveys opulence and everlasting grace.

The Chinese have a saying: one begets two, two begets three, three begets all things. The three characters Bai Fu Man (Full of Hundreds of Blessings) centered within the three conjoined spheres wishes hope, fulfillment and fortune upon all in the new year. The circular moon entryway echoes this sentiment in this most joyous and auspicious season of the Chinese people.

設計概念

華人世界的美學殿堂裡,文人山水畫是至為重要的一支,影響深遠。

經典中式園林造景,如一幅精美長卷,移步換景,每一處都透露著奇巧佈局。

本次櫥窗設計概念,即脫胎於中式江南園林中最具代表性的「月洞門廊」造型。圓形的月洞門,寓意圓滿無缺,融洽和諧;比擬滿月的形象,也有採擷九天勝景,營造人間仙境的願望。

月洞門四周,飾有東方韻味的連續圖紋,靈感同樣來自中式園林的「花窗」工藝;透過線形立方體的組合排列,與居中的月洞門成就方圓對比,虛實相濟的觀感。

月洞門與花窗,構成了一幅畫框,在園林置景中,被譽為「框景」的技巧,由琉璃工房以全新形式重現在SCP藝廊的櫥窗設計上,定格最美的畫面,並且增強了空間景深。透過櫥窗,讓往來賓客,不僅可以觀賞到矚目的豬年新作品,更將視野進一步引領到藝廊的內部空間。

為聚焦琉璃工房豬年新作品,展櫃整體運用啞光布面質感材料包覆。採用了藝廊內墻備受好評的手繪牡丹同款配色與主題,牡丹連續圖紋營造富貴榮華,連綿不息的雍容氣象。

在東方寓言裡,「一生二,二生三,三生萬物」。以三枚圓形串連「百福滿」的新年祝福,希冀世間萬物皆能圓滿吉祥;而圓形的聯想,也與月洞門遙相呼應,營造華人傳統佳節,歡樂祥和的氣氛。
