Design Miami|跟牠們一起放慢腳步,邁阿密最可愛的粉紅色樹懶

除了時尚品牌與設計藝廊,Design Miami也邀請了設計師創作一些能反映當代設計觀的作品;觀眾甫進場館就看到三隻粉紅色的野獸,以單手或雙腳掛在展區,配以淡綠色的佈景,粉嫩柔和的設計吸引不少人坐上旁邊的吊牀上與它們拍照留念。它們由駐倫敦的墨西哥設計師、2019年的設計委員會成員Fernando Laposse 設計,設計師跟與他志趣相投的紡織品設計師Angela Damman以及猶加敦州的工匠合作,創作出三隻人見人愛的野獸。

Dive into the sloths! . To come face to face with the 30 oversized pink sloths I just made make sure to visit and explore the @miamidesigndistrict . Each sloths is made form thousands of agave fiber strands patiently knotted around a metal frame by weavers in Yucatán, Mexico. To achieve the dusky pink hue we used cochineal, an organic pink dye made with tiny scale insects that live in the prickly pear cactus which once dead, they dry out and can be ground into a pigment. .

作品名為《Pink Beast》(譯:粉紅野獸),用上成千上萬條長長的粉紅色劍麻流蘇,塑造出感覺休閒的、懸掛在棕櫚樹之間的吊床,邀請遊客像樹懶一樣放慢腳步!樹懶背後的胭脂紅景色由胭脂蟲製成的,這種胭脂蟲是在墨西哥中部仙人掌上的小寄生蟲,是現存世上最明亮的天然紅色染料,被阿茲特克族群用來琴紡織品和建築物上色。而《Pink Beast》中被上色的劍麻纖,則是從猶加敦州的龍舌蘭植物中收集來的,整個裝置都在Sahcabá的瑪雅織布工社區手工製作。

精挑細選採用到當地的物料和工匠,不過是想提醒參觀者,當代設計與傳統工藝和技術並不互相抵觸,甚至可以發展出可持續的設計方向。Design Miami以外,這些可愛的樹懶也在Miami Design District的四周圍出現。

Just finished setting up Pink Beasts my installation for the @miamidesigndistrict neighborhood comission made with agave fibers coloured with cochineal, a natural dye made with tiny insects that grow exclusively on the prickly pear cactus. Pink Beasts was made in Yucatan, Mexico over the past 3 months and it involved close to 60 people to produce it, most of them indigenous Mayan women. The beautiful hammocks are a limited edition of great @angeladammanyucatan done specifically for this project. Pink Beasts will be in display at the district for the holliday season so make sure to go check it out, relax on the hammocks discover the sloths hanging in trees around the neighborhood and walk under the hanging tails spread around the streets! . . . . . . . #agavefiber #agaveplant #handmade #mayan #mexicandesign #mexicandesigner #naturalfibers #naturaldyes #nontoxic #sustainabledesign #sustainability #indigenouspeople #newcraft #moderncraftsman #moderncraft #contemporarycraft #miami #miamidesigndistrict #pink #pinkhair

One of the many sloths hanging around the @miamidesigndistrict as part of my Pink Beast installation. Each of these is made up of agave fibers dyed with a natural pink cochineal pigment. To make their hairy bodies there are thousands of handmade knots around a metal wire frame. The sloths were made in Yucatan, Mexico home of one of the largest Mayan communities in the country who have been working with this material for thousands of years. Can design help preserve craft traditions alive by giving them a more contemporary feel? I think so! .. . . . . . . . #handmade #craft #moderncraft #naturalmaterials #naturalfibers #naturaldyes #mayan #mexicandesign #artsandcrafts #miamidesigndistrict #miami #sloths #pinkhair #designer #knotted
