固,為碳找到更好的歸宿。
CLAM LAB-
Find a better destination for carbon.

固,從設計出發,向著需要被認識的觀念前進。
在這個減碳已然成為趨勢,而「固碳」還未廣為理解的時代。我們希望透過整體設計的產品、包裝、以及動畫,讓碳固存的概念可以更親近,並喚醒大眾對固碳行動的重視與實踐。
CLAM LAB. Starting from design, the concept is moving forward to be known.
In recent years, carbon reduction has become a global development trend, yet “carbon fixation” hasn’t been widely understood. By our design (products, packaging, and animation), we hope that we can make the concept of carbon sequestration more familiar to the people and arouse them to pay attention to it and put it into practice.

文蛤是很好的固碳材料,在生長過程中,藉由鈣化作用使碳酸離子轉換成碳酸鈣,將二氧化碳封存在殼中。以貝殼平均 90% 碳酸鈣含量估算,每公噸可固化 440 公斤二氧化碳。

台灣年產約六萬公噸的養殖文蛤,擁有發展相關產業的豐沛潛力。人們經常在飲食中接觸文蛤,卻鮮少回收利用。我們希望透過文蛤殼開發的材料製成花器,發揮其保濕與中和酸性土壤的特性,並實踐固碳的理念。

During the growth of clams, they can transfer CO32- to calcium carbonate with the help of calcification and seal carbon dioxide in the shells. Averagely, the shells are composed of 90% calcium carbonate, they can fixate 440 kilograms of carbon dioxide per metric ton.

There are about 60,000 metric tons of clams produced every year in Taiwan. Thus, Taiwan has tremendous potentials in developing correlated. People usually have clams in their diets, but they seldom recycle them. We’d like to put the concept of carbon sequestration into practice through the flowerpot made of the materials developed from clam shells, which can moisturize and neutralize acid.

花器本體以文蛤、洋菜為材料,結合文蛤所生長的淺海及潮間帶意象,以波浪起伏流動的形象,描繪曲面。種上契合材質微鹼特性的香草科植物,四方連續的花器系列造型,點綴家中綠意盎然的一角。

The flowerpot is made of clam shells and agars, presenting with the appearance of shallow sea and intertidal zone where clams grow up. Developing with the image of choppy sea, we depicted the curved surface on the flowerpot. By planting the vanillas that thrive in microalkali soil in the streamlining flowerpots, the houses will be green and alive.

由質地堅硬的木心材雕刻成的儲水盤,透過盆栽底部搭配的棉繩,以大氣壓力、毛細現象為動力,引水而上。比起傳統澆灌節省約 78% 的水,這樣的方式能維持土壤溼度恆定,拉長澆水週期,除了對使用者更加便利,更能有效提供植物生長所需用水。

The self-watering plant tray is carved out of firm hard duramen. The water ascends through the cotton rope under the flowerpot by capillary action. In this way, it saves 78% more water than traditional watering, maintains soil's moisture and extends the watering period. In addition to the convenience for the users, it provides the water that a plant need in order to be more efficient.

為搭配盆栽的口徑與尺寸,設計出精簡尺寸的鏟子與耙子,圓潤如貝的外觀,除了在小空間更易於操作及收納,也為居家情境的使用者提供了兼具功能美感的用具。

Also, we designed the exquisite shovel and rake to match the size and caliber of our flowerpot. They are smooth and shaped like shells, which not only makes them easier to hold and collect, but also provides the users with the tools that are equipped with both aesthetic design and functional practicality.

我們在實驗過程中發現文蛤加上洋菜製作出的材料,具有保水、中和酸性土壤的特性,這樣的材料性質,特別適合用來製作花器。

We found that the materials made of clam shells and agars have the characteristic of holding moisture capacity and neutralizing acidic soil in the process of our experiment, and it is quite suitable for a flowerpot.

我們到建國花市去做實地探訪,發現市售花器多以塑膠為材料,隨著種植過程所需要的各式工具造成了許多浪費和不環保。我們認為可以再詮釋現有的盆栽之外,讓栽種植物的過程對環境有益且更有樂趣。

We went to Jianguo Flower Market. We found that most flowerpots sold in the market were made of plastic, and so were other tools. It caused a large amount of waste. Therefore, we’d like to design a different flowerpot, making the process of planting more eco-friendly and more fascinating.

面對罕見的材料,過程中遭遇了各種超乎想像的問題。從模具到配方、再從製程到造型,每一階段的問題總是接踵而至;我們前後花了近四個月才找出穩定的製作方式,從中理解設計的豐腴和現實的骨感,對開發產品有更深、更多元的觀點。

Because of the rareness of our materials, we faced lots of difficulties beyond our imagination. From the mold to the formula, the process to the modeling, the problems came up in every phase. We spent nearly 4 months finding out the best way to produce our product, and we comprehended the ideal and reality between design, having more and more perspectives in developing a new product.

包裝外觀呼應花器波浪起伏,邊緣塑造出流線形。在顏色上使用了海洋的深藍,豔陽的鮮黃,礫灘的平灰作為陪襯,讓品牌印象鮮明又不失穩重。

The exterior of the package echoes the wavy shape of the flowerpot, creating an elegant streamlined shape at the edges. We utilize the dark blue of the ocean, the bright yellow of the sun, and the flat gray of the gravel beach to make the brand lively and stylish.

形象影片「碳的旅程」,傳達我們「固碳」的過程。二氧化碳先是被釋放進大氣中,流浪於海洋,被固定在文蛤殼裡,再經人們食用、丟棄,最後透過「固」的回收利用——終於找到了歸宿。

The image film "The Journey of Carbon" conveys the process of "carbon fixation”. First, Carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, wandering in the ocean, fixed in the clam shell, and then eaten, discarded by human, and finally recycled through the "CLAM LAB" - at last, carbon dioxide finds a destination.

未來積極開源的「固碳」將會成為趨勢,而不再只是消極節流的「減碳」,固碳材料扮演著重要的角色。從台灣人們飲食中常接觸的文蛤殼作為實驗,試圖找出文蛤殼再利用的價值,讓人們透過接觸產品,認識並落實固碳。期盼以「固」作為起點,為固碳材料開拓新的舞台。

Positive “carbon fixation” will be the trend in the future, but not the passive "carbon reduction," and the materials for carbon fixation play an important role in it. We used clam shells, which are familiar in our diet in Taiwan, to do experiments, and try to find out the reusable value from them. We would like the people to know about the concept of "carbon fixation" and put it into practice through our products. We hope "CLAM LAB" can be a starting point to open up a new stage for carbon sequestration.
