“ X展（X Exhibition）其实就是一个寻找“光”的过程。用光打破设计的暗物质。光代替图形，图形代替照明；光代替语言，语言代替展览导示系统。透过光来解释X，光是idea的灵感一现，强调每一个参展设计师的主体角色，最大程度表现他们的天赋和创造，设计师寻找创造力的过程就是寻找光明的过程。最终他们选定拥有漫散光源的灯管作为发光体，灯管的30cm、60cm、90cm三种固定模数作为表现图形的基本尺寸，将展览主题及参展设计师的姓名拼写出来，创造了“X展”的独特字体系统——“光之字”，贯穿在整个展览的内外及始末。
In “X Exhibition”, we employ light to break dark matter of design. Light takes the place of graphic images. Graphic images take the place of lighting. Light takes the place of language. Language takes the place of the signage system of the exhibition. Light can express what is “X”. Light is idea and inspiration. It stresses the role of every designer of the exhibition and maximizes their genius and creation. The process of designers’ looking for creativity is that of looking for brightness.
We choose modulating tube with emanative light to be luminous body. 30cm, 60cm and 90cm are the three main fixed mode of modulating tube. They become the basic size of presenting graphic images, spelling the exhibition theme and all the names of designers. “Characters of Light”, the unique typeface system is created, going through the whole exhibition.
