2O19年我們將推出箔樣的系列實驗作品——《色箔樣 PIGMENT FOIL CATALOGUE》，期待藉由這份作品，與各位分享我們能取得的色箔款式，並加以展示色箔其適性。色箔呈現的效果絕非金屬箔能夠取代，我們認為《色箔樣 PIGMENT FOIL CATALOGUE》將能為一成不變的燙金選擇中增添更多可能性。
目前常見的燙金圖面設計，多半僅能以有限的技法來表現，透過這幾年的實驗經驗，我們將在此次作品中附上我們自行歸納的有趣實驗技法，透過此實驗作品的展示開啟更多對於色箔的想像，與大家參考交流。《色箔樣 PIGMENT FOIL CATALOGUE》承繼2O18年實驗精神，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。
In Taiwan, opportunities for using Pigment foil are few and their samples are difficult to come by. In addition, due to low compatibility levels of Pigment foil in the making process, it’s not common to see Pigment foil applied to finished products of this kind. Most people are relatively unfamiliar with the possibilities Pigment foil presents.
In 2O19, we will launch a series of foil catalogue experimental works - "Pigment FOIL CATALOGUE". We aspire to share through these pieces the foil styles we were able to obtain and to show the suitability of Pigment foil on the new product. The effect of Pigment foil is by no means replaceable with metal foil. We believe that PIGMENT FOIL CATALOGUE will increase some new possibilities to the seemingly-perpetual option of hot stamping.
"Hot foil stamping is an art positioned between mass production and craftsmanship" (Lin Weizhe)
Most of the common hot foil stamping designs available nowadays can only be represented using techniques which include inherent limitations. After years of experience with experimentation, in the works we will be sharing this time, we present some interesting experimental techniques that were attained by our inductions. We hope that through the display of this experimental work will foster additional innovative ideas for Pigment foil and serve as a reference for everyone’s interest.
"Pigment FOIL CATALOGUE" inherits our experimental spirit of 2O18. Our hope isn’t just that the end result yields a nice sample, more than that, it is to stimulate more possibilities in the process.
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. This is not just a sample of hot foil stamping, but an experimental project that presents genuinely the gold foil as it is.
