BEIJING, Reason Design Emotion
Reason Desing eMoTion
First Beijing International Triennal
Exhibition at the National Museum of CHINA
“The definition of good design differs according to its social and cultural contexts,” says Benjamin Loyauté, key curator of the Reason Design Emotion exhibition.”But there should always be a balance between the symbolic value (emotion) and its functional value (reason) that, like yin and yang in Chinese philosophy, cannot be separated.” The relationship between the two and the search for the balance in between them is the objective of the Reasemotion concept.
“设计的善意,由于社会和文化语境的差异被赋予不同的定义”– 本杰明·卢瓦约特, 理智设计情感展览策展人。“恰如中国哲学中的阴与阳,象征价值(情感)和使用价值 (理智)之间往往存在一种平衡,且彼此不能分离。”寻找二者之间的平衡关系, 是理智设计情感概念提出的目的。
