The 2020 iF Special Issue features 25 Taiwanese interior designers and their works that combine functionality with aesthetics, are rich in taste and substance, and demonstrate the extraordinary design ability of Taiwan. The iF Design Award is an important international event in the design community and a great platform for top players from all nations to exchange ideas. It is undoubtedly also a battleground for all designers, from those wishing to prove themselves to those seeking brand exposure or a boost in brand value. In this year's special issue, readers can expect works of all kinds of styles and dierent orientations.
Please allow me to categorize them:
1. Commercial Success: This type of award-winning designs not only pursues visual perfection in terms of scale, appearance, and texture, but it also has clear insight into user experience. The precise grasp on self/other interactions in the aspect of functionality, such as circulation, service processes, and information transmission, allows the brand to operate more smoothly and maximize spatial value.
2. Innovative & Experimental: Fast-forward into the future, through innovations on structure, atmosphere building, material, and technique, and with the spirit of experimentation, designers could solve social problems and environmental challenges all human beings facing. This type of work is avant-garde and has unlimited explosive force, yet, at the same time, it consists of the spirit of humanitarianism, which is especially interesting to behold.
3. The Heart Knows: During the design process, these designers had eliminated all distractions and only saved their initial aims, and had reached the realm of "The forms of an ego, a personality, a being, and a life are not forms" mentioned in the Diamond Sutra.
Nocompetitive spirit is sensed in these designs and every single element is there in its place. This is the highest form of design, where fatetakes control and everything is just right. An outstanding piece of work should always be multifaceted. In my experience, whenever a panel of international judges conduct a final discussion, they return to the essence of design: to solve problems and to resonate with people. In this issue, the Taiwanese designs are exceptional and full of life. Many thanks to all the designers for showing the world the vigor and vitality that is "Designed in Taiwan".
