D E S I G N  C O N C E P T

The idea of The New Old Light was originated from the cross of eastern and western world, geographically and culturally, which is just like Taiwan. We are playing the role of an invisible line connecting both worlds. Inheriting the beauty of Chinese tradition and embracing the innovation of western evolution, it is the chemistry between the east and the west lights up the path in design.

The simple shape of lampshade comes from traditional Chinese paper lantern; it mixes complex industrial style and soft shapes, eastern and western styles, old and modern aesthetics. In our life, we all need different lamps to meet our decoration styles. The New Old Light is able to be adjusted for different lighting effect by simply pulling down the lantern part to switch the lighting effect from directly spot-light to soft-light effect. Meanwhile, due to the flexibility of lantern structure, you can change the length of the lampshade according to your demand. The New Old Light aims to combine culture difference into culture balance perfectly and to create more possibility of your life style.

2012 KIMU Line Project


KIMU Line Project



Tell the hidden stories, create the hidden possibilities.

LINEs hide in the detail of our daily lives. Secretly, they have linked up every single thing.

2012 LINE x KIMU arouses your imagination and observation to those LINEs you have ignored or took for
granted. Join us to be a detective of your own life. Trace the LINEs to their ends, tell the hidden stories and
create the hidden possibilities.

At the moment of observing and taking note, an invisible LINE has linked our eyes, our hands, to the pens
and ended up at the notes written. The LINE has created the new value of existence for notebook and the
new element for observation in life.

Being the cross of eastern and western world, geographically and culturally, Taiwan is the invisible LINE
connecting the whole world. We inherit the beauty of Chinese tradition and also embrace the innovation of
western evolution. It is the chemistry between the east and the west lights up the path in design.
In the early autumn 2012, at the moment when the flight took off, Taiwan and Helsinki are linked through the
LINE in the sky.

2012 Line Project x KIMU


Tell the hidden stories, create the hidden possibilities.




線段藏在生活細節之中,如同人與人的連結般,物品也與物品之中有著看不見的連結。我們生活在眾多物件中,藉由使用這些生活道具找尋到自我的價值以及對生活的證明。

2012年的柒木設計,試圖找尋這些在物件中的故事,並創造以及連結物品的新價值。

即使我們有了最新的科技,但我們還是保留了傳統筆記。在觀察的瞬間記錄下來,這種從視線到手的動線的連結。或許還會繼續的持續下去吧!偵探守則,我們創造生活中的觀察術。

傳統物件之於燈籠,已經是我們連結文化的一種象徵。台灣屬於一種文化的交集之處,我們承接了傳統中華,也擁抱了西方思維。這種精采的銜接,宛如截斷般的直覺,在東西方交會的瞬間,我們點亮了燈。

x柒木 在2012裡糾結了很多故事,初秋的航,畫出了台灣與赫爾辛基的連結
