Interview with KENG-FU LO at Wednesday 20th of April 2016: DI: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
KL : Function, ergonomics, comfortable feeling of the dyed leather and fine sewing craft are always emphasized by Switzerland classic furniture brand -de sede. It shows combination of warm atmosphere and life, therefore, designer deigns the space base on the idea of emphasizing the value of products, so that the expressions of color tone and atmosphere are cold to make customers have better feeling toward vision and sense of touch on products.

DI: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
KL : Considering the client may introduce another classic furniture brand and maintaining the brand difference, the individual entrance and office area is designed between two exhibition areas. It is not only provided for De sede Kaohsiung shop, but also serve customers base on different needs of brands. The rare construction material- U glass shows the coherence of two spaces. Semi- penetrable decoration material is used to suggest the link with future space, as well as variable segmentation is provided.

DI: Any other things you would like to cover that have not been covered in these questions?
KL : The base is located in Kaohsiung Taiwan. It is a display showroom for few brands of furniture. It includes furniture display area and service space. U shape glass is used to demonstrate the connection of different furniture brands markets. Half penetrated decoration material is used to describe the change of future indirectly. Stone floor provides the direction to living space and leather sample collection. The height of floor is used to make a platform through the rising slope. It not only decreases the height transition between upper and low space, but also reduces the psychological burden when we are moving within floors.
