Sound of ancient culture / Drinking vessel

Sound of ancient culture
Sound of ancient culture

My design was inspired by a warning object in ancient China “Qiqi”. My intention is to design a controlled drinking ritual through a drinking vessel as part of the modern banquet with the dialectical philosophy of Qiqi. It indicates three different filling statuses: slightly tipped when the vessel is empty, upright when the vessel is half full, and tipped over when the vessel is too full. The realization of my design depends on the special form of the vessel, along with the effect of gravity. The acoustic aspect plays a very important role in my design in order to achieve a synaesthetic table culture and carries across Chinese culture.
