What Cultural Contents Are in the Unique Style & Charm of “Taiwanese Design"?
“Flower” is employed in the exhibition as the symbol for the friendship in the Taiwan-Japan exchange. New works made of sustainable, circular materials and classical designs in recent years are used to showcase the spirits and cultural contents of Taiwanese design, i.e. Resource Integration, Social Application, and Response to the Times. The concept “Fictional Garden” is utilized in the space to manifest the rich fruits of the cultural freedom and blossoming designs in Taiwan. Furthermore, the exclusive scent of Taoyuan International Airport that represents Taiwan is fused in the experience, so as to break free from the spatial limit, offering love and blessings to each other in this feast of Fictional Garden with the hope of our next encounter.
