Design Philosophy

设计理念

The studio’s name “Mingdu” refers to the two Chinese characters of “明” (“Ming”) and “渡” (“Du”). Composed of “日” (“the sun”) and “月” (“the moon”), "明" represents the unity of Yin and Yang, the law of nature, as well as a bright future. “渡” takes its meaning from Heart Sutra, meaning the process of crossing with wisdom from one side to the other, helping others as well as oneself walk to the bright and promising future.
“MIingdu” is what we name our studio and entails our design philosophy: to design in accordance with the law of nature; to connect design with society; to bring others to hope and future via design. Those are the issues we intend to think over and explore both at present and in the future, our mission.

“明”是由日和月组成,代表着阴阳的统一和自然运行的规律,同时也代表着光明和未来。“渡”字取自《心经》中的“照见五蕴皆空,渡一切苦厄”,它是代表着用智慧从此岸到达彼岸的过程,帮助他人并共同走向光明和希望。
“明渡”既是我们工作室名字,也代表着我们设计哲学。如何让设计符合自然运行的规律;如何让设计更多地与社会相连接;如何用我们的设计帮助他人,将人们带向希望。这是我们在现在和未来要去思考和探索的问题,也是我们做设计的初衷和使命。

Design Research

设计研究

The design research all belong to the practice of our design philosophy. Instead of considering design as merely a tool for business and market operations, we use our intelligent and creative designs to regulate the balance between men, society, culture and nature.
Blending different cultural elements of the East and the West, we try to explore the common grounds and inclusiveness of cultures and accord with the trends of modern life, while presenting the quintessence of the ethnic cultures.

明渡的设计研究项目是我们对于明渡设计理念的实践,我们认为:设计不仅仅是商业和市场运作中的工具,而是在用我们的智慧和创造性的设计方案去调节人、社会、文化以及自然之间的平衡关系。
同时,明渡原创设计产品将东西方不同的文化与元素相融合,其所展示的不仅是本民族文化的独特性,而更多的是在探索文化的共同性与包容性,并符合当今时代的发展和现代的生活。
