Sword-lion Cup Lid  劍獅杯蓋組

台南安平,一個擁有豐富歷史、人文、建築的聚落,早年大陸移民來台開墾,因人口聚集且建地狹小,造成住宅緊鄰而立,於是無法避免的造成許多風水上的忌諱,當地居民為了化解風水上的禁忌,因而在住宅上裝飾了許多辟邪之物,而其中最為常見即「劍獅」。其祈福、辟邪與鎮煞的功用流傳至今已成為安平的特有文化符號。本設計運用安平劍獅的意象做為概念出發點,藉由劍獅「驅除與保護」的意涵轉化為保護飲品衛生的杯蓋設計,而劍獅嘴中的寶劍,則賦予其攪拌棒的附加功能,讓此產品既有趣味及實用性。

The Anping District in Tainan is a region filled with rich history, culture, and architecture.  One of its most highly representative relics is the “Sword Lion,” whose function to ward off evil spirits with blessings continues to be called upon today.  It has since become a unique symbol for Anping.  This design invokes the Sword Lion’s inherent meaning of “expel and protect” and infuses that into concepts for cup lids, whose function is to protect the hygiene of beverages. Furthermore, the sword in the Sword Lion’s mouth becomes a stirring rod for the cup.  This enables the product to attain both an interesting and rich sense of practicality.
