臺灣與東南亞國家由於所處地理位置與氣候的關係，造就了工藝材料的多樣性以及豐厚、多元的工藝美學，於2014年前進到亞洲的「M&O ASIA亞洲家具家飾展」，也讓我們從中觀察到亞洲不容小覷的市場力與設計力，因此在這次的展出中，除了推介臺灣的綠色工藝設計表現，亦擷取、蒐羅了包含泰國、菲律賓、印度、印尼、馬來西亞等國在工藝設計的創意能量，《Green Touch》所展現的將是一場臺灣與東南亞諸多國家的工藝設計綠色對話。
“Green Touch: Asia Eco Craft Design Exhibition” explores the philosophy and implementation of green design in contemporary craftsmanship. Highlighting the spirits of “local sourcing” and “hand making” within the context of traditional crafts development, the exhibition tackles green ideas in contemporary craftsmanship such as material research, production technology, development of multiple functions, as well as end-of-life product disposition, and illustrates how crafts are presented with ideal aesthetic form and functionality, leading to further discussions on the relationships of craft design, traditional culture and social economy.
Thanks to geological and climate conditions, Taiwan, like many Southeastern Asian countries, is blessed with variety of crafts materials and rich aesthetics. In 2014, during “M&O Asia”, we were very much impressed by the stunning dynamics of marketing power and design capabilities in Asia; therefore in Green Touch, aside from promoting green craft design in Taiwan, we expand our scope to channel creative energy from Thailand, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia into the exhibition, showcasing a conversation on green crafts design among Taiwan and Southeastern Asian countries.
Through such exhibition with environmental awareness, we look forward to raise public attention for Mother Earth, and that both manufacturing end and consumer end fully support green strategies, focus on smart consumption, valuing objects, and eventually strive forward towards sustainable development that equally recognizes life, ecology, and health.
Opening Hours: 9am-5pm （Closed Mondays, except public holidays）
