葉樹一年有兩個花季,每年會掉落大量的檳榔葉,檳榔鞘葉具有多種特性:浸泡軟化可折彎、風乾後輕盈,堅韌有彈性、含天然鹼防蟲易保存。面對如此大量的廢棄葉片,我們試著善用他的特性,加以設計,賦予其一個新的價值。

透過研究試驗,我們保留原住民的傳統工法,將鞘葉浸水軟化後折疊,並插入金屬固定葉柄,以呈現檳榔鞘獨特的紋理及有機形態。充分利用台灣在地原料,以設計的角度,詮釋特有的民族工藝,展現妙法自然之美。

Areca have two flowering seasons per year. These areca will have a great numbers of useless fallen leaves every years. The leaves of Areca fall after the blossom, at the tip of fallen leaf are a sheath part. We started thinking about turning an useless leaves sheath into an useful products to create a new meterial crafts and accomplish the environmental demands. There are several characteristics of Areca sheath, which includes: extremely flexible, easy to bend after soaking, light and tough after dried, with alkaloid, mothproof and easy to preserve. After a series of tests, we tried many treatments and many folding ways to create a variety of shapes. With permutation and combination constantly, we attempted to find the best form that shows the characteristics of this nature material. We reserved the indigenous technique, fold the sheath of the upper half, then inserted the metal stick to regulate it. We tried to combine the local material and unique indigenous technology, and express the nature beauty by design.
