完整的不完美。


這不僅是一份燙金的樣品,也是一份讓金箔如實呈現的實驗性作品。 這次的作品將四十種金箔燙印測試在三款常見紙張上作為基本的樣品外;也嘗試使用了特殊的紙張媒材,藉以探索燙金技術與紙張間的激盪。我們希望這過程得到的不只是一份樣品,更是藉此激發更多可能性。
This is not just a sample of hot foil stamping, but an experimental project that presents genuinely the gold foil as it is. Stamping forty types of hot foil on black, white and red paper, we also apply hot foil on paper with unique features in our effort to discover surprises and sparkles in between, as the colors “fly” off the page. In this project, we are seeking potential rather than making a perfect sample.

紙張與金箔在製作過程中與保存,皆會因為時間與環境產生程度上的變化,而一切的變化都是作品的一部分。
The paper itself and the effect of hot foil stamping are likely to change as results of the making/manufacturing process, storage environment and time. However, these changes belong to the work and complete it.

台灣的金箔樣本通常不具有燙金各式效果的展現,因此我們特選了38種台灣金箔以及兩款德國Kurz色箔,燙印在常用的三種顏色紙張:白色、紅色、黑色上。其中白色紙張選用了聯美超白超雪銅(Sappi德國進口雪銅),紅色與黑色紙張則是選用聯美馬諦斯色紙(Gmund德國進口色紙)藉以觀察金箔在不同質地不同顏色紙張上因特性與質地不同所造成的適性變化,希望透過這個樣本可以展示金箔與紙張材質的關係。

常見的燙金被印物多是日常可見的紙張,透過這次「箔樣 FOIL CATALOGUE」的製作,我們希望以燙金技法去實驗金箔在特殊紋理、質地,甚至特殊的紙張厚度上共 30 種紙張的變化,其中成品不乏有斑駁不均或附著不全的狀況,我們特別將這樣的風味如實呈現,藉以激發使用者視覺、觸覺上的感受體驗。

初心

海流設計是一個期許自己能以設計的力量,成為默默影響社會的設計團隊。
工作之餘,每年我們會設計一份專案以期突破工作現況保有設計初衷,並希望從中探索新的可能性。經過半年多的製作,我們終於完成了海流設計的第一份自有產品「箔樣 FOIL CATALOGUE」。由於台灣鮮有這樣的樣品,過程中從燙金版製作、紙張挑選、製程管理⋯⋯我們解決了許多未曾預見的問題,也學到了許多寶貴經驗,但製作過程過於繁雜超出預期,因此僅製作極限量的340份且不會再版。這不僅是一份燙金的樣品,也是一份讓金箔如實呈現的實驗性作品。
Flowing Design is a design studio pursuing positive social impact through the power of design.
Besides commercial cases, we also launch several special projects every year. While carrying out these projects, we hope to break through the current situation that besets their development, retain the original intention of design, and seek new possibilities along the way. Over more than a half-year of production, our very first product "FOIL CATALOGUE" finally came to be materialized. It is rare to see other similar items like it. We had faced unexpected challenges and overcame numerous obstacles occurred in die making, paper choosing, process quality controlling, but we gained valuable experience from the process. However, since the manufacture process is much more difficult and complicated, we won’t remake it again. Only 340 pieces are released to the public. This is not just a sample of hot foil stamping, but an experimental project that presents genuinely the gold foil as it is.
