Creating aesthetics from nothingness, the designer embedded exquisiteness and effulgence mostly under the dim lights. A lingering charm beyond words is thus born from the poetic ambience. Here, beauty does not come from the objects we see but the shadow, lightness, ripples in between them. The title of this art gallery space, “Nebula,” symbolizes the infinite prosperity that goes far away and beyond. Just as the essence of literary gathering in history, what matters the most in this design is the casualness, the conciseness, the comfort and serenity generated during the process. Thus, different shades of colors are applied to create a peaceful stillness. Completing the space’s simplicity and conciseness, an environment is born for one to sense the beauty of a downshifting lifestyle in tranquility. The delicate lighting design in the enormous space offers a sufficient glow with spatial fluidity. The basic concepts of contrast, balance, symmetry, proportion, rhythm, and patterns, are applied for diverse arrangements of objects. The whole space is neat and concise with selective and delicate texture, which offers mildness and gentleness in the space. Through a combination of wooden material and copper imitation stainless steel, variable multilayers are created. The introduction of Chen Qi’s work Code of Nature depicts the lively aesthetics of ripples to slow down the pace of the surroundings. Focusing on the expression of natural elements, the bonsai application establishes a sense of oriental garden. Wooden flooring, marble table, and the plants used all compose an one and only landscape inside. Calligrapher Yang Xiaojian is an innovator in modern Chinese calligraphy. His bold application of Western abstract expressionism gives a new life to traditional Chinese calligraphy. The ink and wash elements of his novelty echo perfectly with the minimalist interior style. The charm of Zen is expanded through integration of lighting and variable substances. Between bulkiness and lightness, one can take a seat for a sip, enjoying the Zen atmosphere under exquisite lighting design.
