Interview with Yu Wei Lin at Wednesday 20th of April 2016: DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
YL : Countless times I have immersed myself in the sense of space, have absorbed the mood of the environment, and taken in the shady green outside the windows. It’s like a dialogue with space. At first, all that’s floating in front of my mind’s eye is a faux red brick wall. Then there are all the daring colors and unfettered expressiveness of the industrial narrative, not the least bit jarring against the verdant hues outside the window. And, as the grand finale, like the climax of the movie Whiplash, the injection of concentrated talent, effort, and emotion, an unbridled, all-stops-pulled-out impromptu performance: a dazzling triumph of thinking outside the box.

DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
YL : To overcome the constraints imposed by the long rectangular shape of the available space, large items of furniture such as the conference table, front desk, and self-designed Y-shaped worktable are designed at a 45 degree tilt, not only opening up more room for walking around, but also allowing the wonderful scenery outside to make its visual impact at a niftily slanted 135 degree angle.

DI: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
YL : About couple weeks.

DI: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
YL : No

DI: What made you design this particular type of work?
YL : After many years of working in the business, we got a new office. There is no more clients’ demands to weigh me down, no more restrictions to cramp my style, no more having to conform to other people’s dreams. Just to channel my creativity to realize even greater dreams for my clients.

DI: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
YL : No

DI: Who is the target customer for his design?
YL : our clients

DI: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
YL : New material. It was a breakthrough decision to use PVC, usually more of a floor material, for the walls. The imitation rust PVC was embellished with 3,500 rivets, applied by hand, to create an industrial-style framework.

DI: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
YL : To overcome the constraints imposed by the long rectangular shape of the available space, large items of furniture such as the conference table, front desk, and self-designed Y-shaped worktable are designed at a 45 degree tilt, not only opening up more room for walking around, but also allowing the wonderful scenery outside to make its visual impact at a niftily slanted 135 degree angle—this way, the sunshine and shade trees, and even the falling rain and the people strolling past outside, provide an ever-changing decorative background that never gets old.
