輕鬆遊北歐/丹麥 感受哥本哈根的設計精神
【圖.文/節錄自《輕鬆遊北歐》/作者安妮/華成出版】

 

丹麥的設計以簡潔的線條、優美的造型及功能主義見長,舉凡在建築、家具、銀飾及瓷器等各領域都有舉世聞名的大作,也因此贏得「設計王國」的美譽。走進首都哥本哈根不僅可欣賞這些名師的大作,更可感受到以人為本的功能主義設計無所不在地融入日常生活,帶給人們便捷、舒適且賞心悅目的美感。

 

◎丹麥設計的縮影——皇家哥本哈根&喬治傑生

 

提到丹麥的設計,最具代表性的莫過於皇家哥本哈根(Royal Copenhagen)及喬治傑生(Georg Jensen),這兩個品牌代表著丹麥設計的縮影。

皇家哥本哈根源自於1775年,丹麥皇后茱莉安.瑪莉為製作皇室餐具及贈品而特設的御用瓷廠,數百年來融合丹麥傳統工藝與東方瓷繪風格,堅持手繪傳統,重視品質和豐富的設計文化,不僅成為丹麥引以為傲的國寶,也成為享譽國際的瓷器品牌。

喬治傑生是喬治.傑生於1904年在哥本哈根創立的第一家銀飾工作室,百年來堅持以藝術家的設計,結合資深銀匠對工藝的熱情,創造出領導時尚的手工銀飾,如今已擴展為知名的跨國企業,更是高級銀飾的代名詞。

走進行人徒步街的喬治傑生旗艦店,會看到各年份的款式,不論是經典的銀飾或後來以不鏽鋼材質設計出的餐具、燭台、辦公,以及個人用品,皆呈現一股優雅內斂的設計風格,簡潔的線條總是能勾起人們嘴角的微笑。

旁邊的皇家哥本哈根總店,也可以看到各年份的餐盤親切地堆疊在原木架上,從傳統的丹麥之花、唐草、花邊,一直到現今的音符人偶、歐麗和大唐草等系列,不論是尊貴典雅或簡潔時尚,皆呈現優雅脫俗的氣質,難怪高貴的價格仍能擄獲丹麥人及觀光客的心。看著畫工師父專注地描繪瓷盤,和顧客捧著產品的欣喜,我了解到不論是皇家哥本哈根或喬治傑生,它們賣的不僅是產品,而是品質、設計、信任及品牌的歷史。

◎經典的家居設計

 

除了享譽國際的品牌之外,丹麥還有許多經典的家居設計歷經數十年仍居市場的領先地位。例如,走在哥本哈根的商店、餐廳、百貨公司,常常會看見一種像毬果、像雪球,又像片片花瓣的燈飾,簡稱「PH」燈。這是國寶級大師保羅•漢寧森(Paul Henningsen)於1924年所設計的燈飾,它能避免清晰的陰影,從任何角度都不會直接看到光源,也不會產生眩光,呈現非常柔和的照明效果。至今仍然非常暢銷,幾乎已成為丹麥的「國燈」,街頭巷尾常常可見到此系列的燈飾。

閒逛哥本哈根的博物館、美術館或圖書館,也常常會看見一種造型很像螞蟻的椅子,這是設計大師阿諾•雅可森(Arne Jacobsen)六十年前的大作——Ant chair。仔細端詳,它的線條非常簡潔,從椅背到椅座是一體成型的螞蟻造型,坐在上面,身體與椅子會很自然地以非常舒適的角度服貼,而且往後靠時,椅背會以適中的力量支撐著脊椎,整個人彷彿與椅子結合為一體,十分舒適。而且它非常好收納,可一把把地疊在一塊兒,要寄運時,還可以將椅座與四隻腳輕鬆分離,節省空間。

我跟它的第一次接觸是在丹麥朋友家作客,不起眼、有點斑駁的外觀,讓我幾乎沒注意到它的存在,直到坐上去才發覺是寶,原來這是她家繼承的古董椅,而且是雅可森大師最早期的三隻腳系列,真是有眼不識泰山!這看似平凡的椅子竟然好到還代代相傳,讓我深深感受到丹麥人重視生活的態度,也了解到真正的經典就是能這麼歷久彌新。

 

◎美術館裡也有貼心設計

 

丹麥的貼心設計還表現在美術館和博物館裡,像哥本哈根的新嘉士伯美術館(Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek)中央的「冬之花園」就是一例。這是來自創辦人嘉士伯啤酒廠老闆卡爾•雅可森(Carl Jacobsen)的貼心設計,他以參觀者的角度出發,認為接受藝術洗禮的同時,也要享受心靈的沉澱,再加上當時人們崇尚地中海的度假方式,所以設計了這座熱帶花園。

高大的棕櫚樹聳立在30公尺高的圓頂玻璃帷幕下,陽光透過蜂蜜色的玻璃灑在草木和雕像上,營造出熱帶叢林的悠閒氛圍。四座展覽館的出口都通向這裡,讓參觀者一走出展館就能在這裡小憩,感受度假般的愜意,尤其在北歐的漫漫長冬裡彌足珍貴。

 

★新嘉士伯美術館
開放時間:周二至日10:00~16:00,周日免門票

本來還想說要回家趕之前沒交的homework
也不用交了...真開心~
Marco 最後給了我B+ ^^
His final coments is:
"Nice to have you in my class, you have done well and improved a lot since midterm. Good job."

In the past 7-8 weeks, I have been working hard and tried my best to catch up on homework assignments...
I'm glad all the pain and hard work got paid off.
Actually I'm very satisfied the grade Marco gave me...
My next classes will begin on 9/3 so I will have some "free time" from now till then to plan my Korea trip...
To me, year 2009 is probably my busiest year in these couple years!!

The Page of Cups The Page of Cups
in the Past position.


Good news. Invitation. A cheerful young person with a trusting heart. Optimism. Romantic interest. Imagination. Playfulness. Artistic abilities. Compassion and understanding. Birth of a child. An accommodating, well-mannered soul.




Knight of Swords Knight of Swords
in the Present position.


Daring, impressive young man of action. An impulsive but usually well-meaning person. Heroic, if a little rash. A man who can be wearing and disruptive, but also effective. Being determined, intelligent, and single-minded. Goals taking priority over relationships. A mercenary. Standing up for oneself or others. Bringing matters to a head.




The Wheel of Fortune The Wheel of Fortune
in the Future position.


Surprise. Change of fortune. Unexpected turn of events. Good luck. Progression. Windfall. Measurable time or natural cycle. Upturn of the wheel. Improvement. After struggles, obstacles give way and plans engage. Breakthrough and movement. Blind fortune. Chance. Moods of fate. Surmounting difficulties. Relief from another¹s oppression. The Wheel of Fortune can herald random change neither sought nor deserved, reminding us that fate sometimes rewards the unworthy while denying those deserving of luck. The card also carries a warning to the vain and fame seekers, in that what went up must come down, and at times depicts the figure atop the wheel with the ears of an ass. The wheel can represent a natural shift of circumstance or phase in life, such as the change from adolescent to adult, adult to middle age, etc.
