Topology

Topology is a series of black & white hand sketches by Huang Zi (the artist) that explores the imaginative topography of various landscapes and people's relationships with them. Because on every inch of every terrain, there is life. It is a diary of sorts to capture the stories of his various travels to faraway places. Documenting journeys through an artistic rendition is a historical way to celebrate the places that others call home. Huang Zi is bringing this art form to the digital age via an online gallery and social media.

The Future of Us

The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) Advanced Architecture Laboratory (AAL) was commissioned to design this large-scale building envelope for The Future of Us exhibition in late 2014. The visitors of the exhibition experience a stunning play of light and shade cast by an intricate metal lattice, like a ‘walk in an imaginary forest’. It is the capstone event to round up Singapore’s Golden Jubilee (SG50) year of celebrations.

Silvia

Silvia bathtub is inspired by the shape of a terracotta bath from 1700 BC and discovered in the palace of Knossos on Crete. Silvia is functional and ergonomic, so that it corresponds to human shape and is wider in shoulders and gets narrower towards feet. This shape also brings reduction in water use, from 280 to 130 liters. The overflow integrated in a thin wall is a solution that so far has not been applied in mass production. The bathtub is made of cast marble, with natural dolomite powder, ensuring warmth and comfort of use.

Battle For Sevastopol

The movie isn’t about a war. It’s about people at war. And frankly, all the movie is trying to say is that war is a bad thing! The director of main titles was looking for something that would unite all of these people, both survivors and fallen. It has to be something in tune with those times. And here he finds it. It’s the victory. At what specific moment every single character experiences his or her own victory? What are those characters doing at that moment? What do they look like? It is crucially important to express this feeling through the position, emotion and shape of a figure itself.

Svalbardi

Svalbardi is harvested from icebergs freshly calved off glaciers in the remote Polar region of the Svalbard archipelago, 1000 kilometres from the North Pole. The pristine ice, up to four thousand years old, melts into water so pure it is almost mineral free. The design had to convey the unique source and purity of the water. Keeping the graphics to the minimum allows the bottle and water to evoke the stillness and beauty of this Arctic landscape. The addition of a gift tube is unusual in the bottled water market and singles out Svalbardi as a unique purchase.
