Special Interview of the Xiamen Stone Fair in 2024 with Stonelink - Part 1

Topic 1 of Interview on the 2024 Xiamen Habitat Design and Life Festival: Dialogue with Eva Li, General Manager of Xiamen Stonelink Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd., and renowned designer Kinney Chan - On the theme of the Festival - "To Activate"


Interview with renowned designer Kinney Chan:

The theme of this year's Xiamen Habitat Design and Life Festival is "To Activate". What were your thoughts when you received this proposition? What is the correlation between your current design theme "Weaving" and this year's theme "To Activate"?


Kinney Chan: 

When I see the words "To Activate", the first thing that comes to my mind is people's views on certain fixed things. Therefore, my understanding of "To Activate" is not only about activating stone, but also about breaking people's conventional thinking about things.

In traditional applications, stone is mostly used for furniture and wall cladding, or is it left to give people a very cold and hard feeling. So, in this design, we break people's perception of stone by using the element of sweaters and weaving patterns.


Interview with Eva Li, General Manager of Xiamen Stonelink Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd.:

This year is Stonelink's first time participating in the Xiamen Habitat Design and Life Festival. Why do you want to participate in this project? What was your feeling when you received the curatorial theme of "To Activate"? What are your expectations?


Eva Li:

As representatives of stone brands, we are well aware of the important position of stone in architecture and home design. But we also realize that stone is often regarded as a cold and hard material in traditional concepts. Therefore, we are very eager to explore more possibilities of stone with designers through the Xiamen Habitat Design and Life Festival, breaking people's inherent impression of stone.

When we received the curatorial theme of "To Activate", we deeply felt that this theme is very in line with our brand philosophy. We hope to showcase the diversity and innovation of stone through this theme, allowing people to see that stone is not only a building material, but also a design element with artistic value and humanistic care. We look forward to sharing our philosophy and products with more people. This theme effectively encourages designers to challenge traditional thinking and find new ways to activate stone. We look forward to seeing more designers apply innovative concepts and techniques to combine stone with other materials and create stunning design works. We also hope that through this event, we can promote the development of the stone industry and let more people understand the diversity and beauty of stone.
