‘Jike Idea’ is the first container garage that accomplished by Beijing Jikerzhicheng Product Design Consulting Co., Ltd. This work concept origins from Lvshe’s theme activity in 2012, ‘dragging the box to travel’. ‘Jike Idea’ is prepared for this activity. After it is finished, the container carrying designers travelled 6000km from Beijing to Jiuzhaigou. In this trip, ‘Jike Idea’ acted as a touring car, a state and a movie theater and many other leisure functions. Designers and ‘Jike Idea’ finished a beautiful dreaming design trip.
No door – how designers deal with environment protection
Jike Idea’s nickname is ‘no way’ and it is transformed from a 20feet used-container. The container without a door broke the definition line between indoor room and outdoor room, the container space can stretch out limitless through seamless connect with the environment. Designers like to solve the problem, and enjoy the process.
The container forms a ventilation system of three dimensional based on several round windows in the four walls and ceiling. In the container, natural light is abundant and you needn’t the air conditioner. There is no need to turn on the lights in the daytime and you can see the stars at night.
In addition, after designers remove more than 1/3 walls, the container likes a tea house or pavilion because the ground floor connect with the two deployment platform. In order to solve the waterproof problem, designers used the carbonized wood floor. The leisure room place behind the heat insulation wall to prevent rain and insulate.
And designers used wire rope linking the ceiling and the floor to lead the rain into the interior— a natural water landscape without power in the box. The rain can water the plant, When does not rain, the crystal transparent rain containers can be adjusted any position with you like.
No door – round, rope and color
Round: The circle is the main graphic element in ’Jike Idea’. First of all, people loves the graph round; secondly, the circular object shockproof compression, and can be moved easily (round window, drums, ball lights, etc); thirdly, Circle accord with our “Daydream” theme, “relaxed a little, innocent a little”.
Rope: Rope is the main form designers used to solve a variety of small problems in this box. Due to rope’s characteristics of flexible, invisible, extended intensity range, it qualified for a variety of tasks (fence, guide rain line, rope lights, curtain rope, fixed network and so on). Besides, it can be hided in a small space.
Color: The external walls of the main color is a beautiful white Sitting on the platform enjoyed film in the wild under the stars is a very rare experience. Interior walls and furniture using the natural color of the stone, ink rock, carbon black color, posing as outdoor, formed a color connection between indoor and outdoor.
