A collaboration by TZULAÏ and LivinGreen
Chaozhou Street house renovation provides inspiration for the Chaozhou Green Terracotta Mug
At the beginning of 2019, LivinGreen’s executive team 2 By Wu&Chen implemented a design plan for the renovation of a 1963 Japanese concrete house. The color “PANTONE 5463 Green” was used as the exterior wall color, integrating with each of the design team member’s memories of Taiwan, becoming the new center of attention on Chaozhou Street.
TZULAÏ uses terracotta that is often used in Taiwan’s traditional buildings as a mug material to convey the simplicity of the Taiwanese lifestyle. This brand’s classic mug makes this construction material closer to modern homes, for everyone to enjoy various temperature and taste.
LivinGreen and 2 By Wu&Chen designed the exclusive boxes for the packing of the Chaozhou Green Terracotta Mug. Inspired by the window frames of old apartments, carving the silhouettes and frames that were common in Taiwan’s houses, a recollection of street scenes from both sides of the window.
While going through the development of the old community along Chaozhou Street, 2 By Wu&Chen found that because of nearby military bases in the early years, the surrounding buildings were required to use the earthy colors as their colors, along with the greenery that the residents planted, the colors were interwoven to a unique community appearance.
The PANTONE 5463 green, was used as a tribute to the old house, the community, and old Taiwan. This color was used from the remodeling, the color of the exterior wall of the 1963 house while reliving childhood memories to becoming this influential Chaozhou green.
TZULAÏ and LivinGreen limited-edition collaboration Chaozhou Green Terracotta Mug,
hopes to use Chaozhou Street as a starting point for everyone to be reminded of Taiwan memories using terracotta, glazed pottery, grilles, and old houses.
