序言

 

明张瀚《松窗梦语·百工纪》记载:“吴制器而美……四方贵吴器,而吴益工于器”。明清时期,苏作明式家具以文人参与设计鉴赏、造型朴素大方、线条简练流畅、借木材天然色泽及纹理流露自然之美而著称。正如明沈春泽为《长物志》所作序言云:“几榻有度,器具有式,位置有定,贵其精而便、简而裁、巧而自然也”。明式古典红木家具完美呈现着简练质朴的艺术风格,饱含着工匠精湛的手工技艺,浸润着明代文人的审美情趣。

 

进入清代中期,绚丽、豪华、繁缛的清式家具应运而生。它一改明式家具“古、雅、精、丽”的特点,造型浑厚、庄重,骨架粗壮结实,多方直线条;装饰求多求满、富丽堂皇,题材生动且富于变化,多有镶嵌金银玉石,描金、彩绘亦有所见。

 

而新明式家具则在传统设计的基础上,融入新时代的时尚元素,与生活融合,更强调舒适感和功能性。既注重设计的美观,又注重人体工程学,追求实用与审美的统一。简约的设计,也反映出现代人去繁就简的生活态度。

 

宋卫东,一个自幼生长于充满着“苏式工艺”影响环境中的苏州人,耳濡目染,渐渐钟情于苏作红木家具的制作。三十余载的辛勤耕耘,“一辈子只做好一件事”的他坚守初心,以紫檀、黄花梨、酸枝等东南亚名贵木材为原料,以“苏式”家具、仿古家具、雕刻工艺品等各种复古风格的高档红木制品为载体,继承和发扬了传统苏式家具的精髓,凝聚了中式传统家具的秀美和典雅。

 

最后,感谢宋卫东先生捐赠《冰竹纹围屏宝座》和《竹节花篮摆件》两件作品,为丰富我馆馆藏作出贡献。

Preface

 

An old saying goes in the Ming dynasty that the nationals adore craftsmen from Suzhou for their being good at making utensils. The Suzhou style furniture in the Ming dynasty was well-known for its simplicity and conciseness. Usually the literatir would play a role in the design. The furtinure displayed a kind of natural beauty with lustre and texture of the log. Just as another saying goes, the furniture should conform with its standards and take the designated position, both refined and ingenious. The Ming style furniture, unadorned, manifests the craftsmen’s high skills and literati’s aesthetics.

 

When it came to the mid-Qing dynasty, the furniture became more magnificent and sophisticated. Distinguished from the antiquity and refinedness of the Ming style, it looked more grave and dignified in structure with a big frame, extravagant decorations, vivid motifs, inlays with different valuable materials, while decoration with gold or silver powder or colored paintings can also sometimes be seen.

 

On the basis of traditional design, the neo-Ming style furniture tries to integrate elements of contemporary times and fit in daily life. It intends to combine practical use with appreciation for beauty, with an emphasis on comfort and function. On the one hand, it strives to be artistic, and on the other, it fixes an eye on how to make people feel comfortable while seated. The design also reveals people’s craving for a simple life nowadays that they would like to live a reclusive life as people in ancient times.

 

Mr. Song Weidong, who grew up in Suzhou and has been influenced by Suzhou handicrafts since childhood, gradually develops an affection towards making furniture. Devoted to his career for over thirty years, he inherits and develops the quitessence of Suzhou style furniture, that is, to showcase the finess typical of furniture in Jiangnan area and the grace typical of tradinitional Chinese furniture with precious Southeast Asia woods and making them into top furniture modelled after antiquity.

 

Sincere thanks go to Mr. Song Weidong for his donation of two works, which enriches our collections.
