中国传统材料图书馆 Chinese Traditional Material Library

Chinese Traditional Material Library is basic on Bamboo,Silk,Mud,Matel,Wood and other Chinese Craft. 

中国传统材料图书馆是整个From余杭设计图书馆的初衷所在。每个材料的背后是一个传统手工艺的作坊。但这不是一个简单的手工艺展示。品物流形团队近五年时间,对传统手工艺的解构与分解,整理出不同的材料种类。

比如源于油纸伞的制作工艺,被分解为13种不同的材料,而非仅仅纸伞本身。包括伞骨、糊纸、穿线等材料,已经可以被设计师直接用于当代设计。这是品物流形提出的“融rong”的解构观点。
