HANC

A brand of lifestyle created by Mr. Angus Ngai Chung Hon,
the local Architect.

“HAN” denotes “Oriental” while “C” is “Contemporary”. After years of design and cultural research, HANC furniture perfectly reveals the aesthetic of the eastern timber architecture through hardwood furniture. Overall it is architecture; when looking closer it is furniture, presenting incredible timber construction in different scale.

Brand Idea

HANC retains architecture and natural aesthetics with solid timber furniture, and uses modern design language to increase the appreciation value of traditional culture in modern life. HANC also expresses the integration of life and nature via traditional handcrafts and stories. We believe an artifact should contain people’s memory and emotion so that they can be carried forward to next generation.

“TIMBER”– Natural Rhythm

“HOME”– Between People

“OBJECT”– Artifact

“Timber” is regarded as the soul of Chinese architecture: to a large extent which is wooden beam and column; to a small side which is window and wooden frame. Timber is in the transition between the artificial world and nature. It ables to form homes for everyone in – between which is understand as “Tang”. When human exists, “Tang” is an artifact hooked up with habitants’ activities; when no one exists; it silently blends in and becomes a part of nature. However, the concept of ‘Tang’ now doesn’t exist anymore and has also been faded away. HANC, therefore integrated the concept of “Tang” with Ming furniture. For instance, Lattice window turns into a table when placing it flat; the cornice changes to be a chair when it is moved down; the Dougong becomes a table when making it small. All are the masterpiece by the designer. We make every piece of furniture with traditional structural aesthetic and technique of joineries, giving tradition a brand new life. Every chair and table is an intelligence of craftsmanship; HANC believes this cultural spirit should be carried forward.

Eastern life is formed by landscapes. Wooden column and beam stand towering among fields, mountains and forests. A wise man loves the mountains, while a true man loves the sea. Although ancient architectures were unable to be retrieved, their cultural spirit can be reborn on the furniture. We hope to recur this harmony, with timber as material and wood grains as decoration, expressing a sense of nature.
