Interview with Eric Tam : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Eric Tam : The main principle of my design is that to bring out the client's belief in Zenism, to create a living space for the client in the Zen way, which is to create harmony at home. The main inspiration came from the first meeting with client as they brought up the idea that they believe in Zenism, and would like their home to be a quiet and peaceful space. .Frank Scott: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?. Eric Tam : The main focus of this project is to accentuate the theme which is the Zenism for our client. For example, the combination of material used are iron and wood, especially the stairway, which became the main focal point of the apartment as a whole. Other than that, there is also a fish pond at the bottom of the stairs, which alleviates the industralism that the iron material has brought to the space. .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?. Eric Tam : My future plan for this award winning project is to exhibit at the Macau interior design exhibition in May as well as another exhibition in August. As an interior design firm, we would like our potential clients to know that we are a mutil-award winning firm. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Eric Tam : It took place for two to three months, including the research process, meetings with client and sketching. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Eric Tam : First of all, the homeowner has inspired me to emphasize the Zenism for the home, and client also said that they prefer a modern Zenism living space. Secondly, We were easy to communicate and exchange ideas due to the fact that this was the third time we worked with the client of this specific project. It was almost like designing a home for friends. Thirdly, there is certainly a misleading stereotype of the Chinese interior design style, which is because it is believed that Chinese homes are very traditional looking. However, this project has proved that there are a lot of variations for Chinese interior design. .Frank Scott: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?. Eric Tam : I do not wish or intend to sell or lease the production rights to any other companies. .
