For the way of sustainable design, we try to pursue a design thinking which is infinitely close to eternity. It is a objective fact that everything has a life cycle.Thence what the designer has to do is to extend the life of things as much as possible to tend to eternity infinitely.
 
Symbolizing eternal,the Pyramid has stood for thousands of years. We use this as a carrier to express our attitude towards the pursuit of eternal things.The lighting device are named after the homophony of “Modular ”,which Chinese pronunciation is “Mo Diu Le ”.Modular is the design method we pursue, the homophony ”Mo Diu Le ”in Chinese is a cold humor expression which expresses a sustainable attitude of “Don’t  throw it away and continue to use it.”Assuredly the sustainable design we mentioned here can not sacrificed at the expense of user experience and functionality.Based on the MAZHA 2.0,the MODIULE PYRAMID lighting device is constructed by modularization. And the overall size can be adjusted to suit the size of the space.
 
The expression of “Mo Diu Le”aims at reflecting the attributes that the replaceability of each component of the device helps to keep other components from functioning properly.While there are too many “Throw it off if it breaks” designs in life, which is also a great irony for designers.The life cycle of every design is just like the process of person’s birth,senility,illness and death.However,most designers and factories just create “life ”,forget “senility,illness and death”.The designers’ responsibility for society and the environment is reflected in the way of design the length of the design’s life cycle and in how to treat it after retirement.
 
莫丢了金字塔
 
        对于可持续设计的方式,我们尝试追求一种无限接近永恒的设计思维,而万事万物都存在生命周期是一个客观事实,作为设计师所要做的是尽量延长事物的寿命来无限接近永恒。
 
        象征永恒的金字塔已经跨越了几千个春秋,我们以此为载体来表达我们追求事物永恒的态度。灯具装置命名以Modular谐音“莫丢了”,Modular(模数化)是我们追求的设计方式,“莫丢了”以冷幽默的口吻来表达“不要丢弃可以继续用”的可持续性的使用态度,当然这里的可持续性设计不能牺牲使用体验和功能为代价。以马扎灯2.0为基础,通过模数化的方式来构成“莫丢了金字塔”灯具装置,整体尺寸可以根据空间大小来调整适应比例。
 
        表达“莫丢了”是为了体现装置每一个零部件的可替换性而不影响到整体其余零部件运转的属性,而生活中存在着太多“坏掉即扔掉”的设计也是对设计师们莫大的讽刺。每一件设计的生命周期就像人的生老病死,大多设计师和工厂只是创造了“生”,而忘了“老病死”,设计师的对于社会和环境的责任感体现在对待每一个设计的生命周期的长短和报废后设计处理方式。
 
        站在更为宏观角度去看待,一款可以变换无穷造型的灯具系统,可以抑制设计师和工厂创造更多不同种类不够完美的灯具出现,不好的新设计会占用非常多生产和材料资源,所以对于设计师而言,适用性广的系统化设计方式是一种行之有效的可持续设计。
