Tunnel through space-time
Time is like a halo that stores fragments of memory. The red bricks alternate along arcs and are eventually woven into a circle, creating a magnificent field beneath the vaulted ceiling.
Currently, raw materials are being revived. The red terracotta bricks are arranged in a variety of shapes to create a simple atmosphere. It allows people to imagine a rich “inner world”, opening up a spatial dialogue between the past and the future.
dream as a horse
An ideal lifestyle represents one’s dreams and ambitions. Horse imagery is evoked to interpret the space’s unique and bold vibe.
The story of design aims to convey the idea that work can be a poetic process integrated with ideals of life. The majestic posture of the horse elegantly emerges in the space, and that spirit is incorporated into the pursuit of design. The horse is out in space yet independent of the mundane world and conveys a kind of symbolic meaning.
The traditional office reception mode will be ditched and replaced with an enclosed layout that encourages communication in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Historic photographs on the walls pay homage to CCD’s glorious memories of the last 30 years.
Artist Bian Jiang’s statue “Pony Crossing the River” shows the brave spirit of the horse and its insurmountable resilience.
poetry and elegance
Life becomes a celebration when lifestyle and space come together. The rational division of space breaks the cycle of time, allowing people to walk, wander, and get lost in between. When light subtly shifts in still time, the rhythm of space, the nature of light, the colors, textures, and even the scent of green, connect with the most primal self freed from the shackles of time.
Impressive red and green flower art and green add brightness to the elegant space. It creates a unique vitality while enriching the space.
Especially eye-catching are three types of bespoke seats: a high-back chair, a comfort chair and a footstool.
Paintings, sculptures, furniture, and more, unexpected art encounters await at every corner. The contrast between long-standing traditions and new trends shapes the designer’s lifestyle and aesthetics while bringing new possibilities to the space. The art-filled space remains austere in the face of the outside noise. Its nourishment makes the space romantic, enchanting and relaxing.
A romantic surprise away from everyday life “Flower Room”
“I enjoy working with flowers every day.” The flower room is a source of energy, a backyard of happiness and inspiration. Surrounded by plants, staff can read, draw, or write without distraction.
Flower chamber plants subtly weaken the separation between inside and outside. And the open connection area becomes a place of leisure and spiritual support. The sea of flowers is the perfect place for communication, enjoying flowers, drinking tea, relieving boredom, and dreaming about the distant future.
Respect for craftsmanship
The red brick conveys the color and temperature of the city and inherits the memory of history.
Just like real bricks, it has a handmade taste by craftsmen. It has a thick texture and a subtle warmth. Traditional and rustic, but full of cultural charm.
The only way to keep your original intentions alive is to do them. We pay tribute to the craftsmanship that continues to create crafts with heart and hands over the years.
Today, in the face of an overwhelmingly fast-paced culture, we are determined to explore our traditional craftsmanship in greater depth and preserve it in a variety of ways, which can be seen in our later work. can.
In exploring the evolution of design, sometimes we have to step back and think about our roots, rather than simply driving innovation and breakthroughs. As a result, we began to focus on giving back to nature.
Smart Materials Platform Makes Design Easier
Raritag, a sub-brand of CCD, has developed Ideafusion, an intelligent materials platform for global suppliers working with CCD. It is a platform that streamlines the workflow of interior designers and realizes digital and information-based material design.
At the same time, we provide designers with one-stop services for inspiration and resource sharing, and drive the industry’s technological development through innovation.
Nearly 1,000 suppliers are now on the platform, offering more than 130,000 materials. A platform that enables one-click material list creation, online sample request, and design material management.
With the introduction of big data, the material selection process for the project was shortened from one month to one to two weeks, improving efficiency by more than 50%. In addition, the material list can be generated online in one click, making it easier for the designer to change supplier and material information, reducing his error rate by 95%.
Quality of life starts with the details
Bright colors and fun details diversify the space and create an elegant lifestyle.
“I hope that everyone can be interested and free in a space where the soul is spontaneous, real and attractive.” Emotions, symbolizing the pursuit of aesthetics in the most comfortable environment.
The industrial style of the conference room is an attempt at a groundbreaking experience that defies boundaries and pursues fun.
High-quality furnishings and intricate décor enhance the luxurious and artistic atmosphere. Crossing the boundaries of vintage and fashion, a polysemic and harmonious clash is created, freeing the space from convention and mundane monotony.
Headquarters overcomes traditional office stereotypes of being ruthless, rational, and orderly. Rather, it’s lively, homely, and diverse. Like a traveler’s house, each item in the space is collected from around the world and tells its own story.
It is a space where various businesses and lifestyles such as work, meditation, catering, boutique shop (showroom), painting room, flower room, art exhibition, multimedia display, and leisure are integrated.
