書軒地點:@靜思人文@
刊登日期:2014-06-27

由德國著名設計協會Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen創立的紅點設計大獎,是一項通過對產品設計(product design),傳達設計(communication design)以及設計概念(design concept)的國際性設計競賽,與德國iF獎、美國IDEA獎並稱為世界三大設計獎,每年吸引了超過60個國家,1萬餘件作品參賽。今年(2014年),經過40名評審嚴選審核,慈濟的「福慧床」在1816個單位所送出的4815設計品中,脫穎而出,獲得「最高品質」肯定大獎。


    得獎誠然可喜,而獎項背後的因緣更是盈暖於心。

一.菩薩所緣,緣苦眾生

        2010年夏天,巴基斯坦遭逢世紀水患,在慈濟賑災團傳回的影像中,有位出生十多天的女嬰因家舍遭到洪水沖損,弱小身軀裹著薄巾,棲身在濕冷地上,映入證嚴上人眼簾,哽咽難喻,類此遭遇的苦難眾生,天地之間,不知凡幾。不忍眾生受苦的上人,遂與慈濟志工研商救災方案,而有簡易組合式睡床的萌想,以期災變發生之際,能及時提供安睡之處。而在該次巴基斯坦大型賑災發放中,近萬組簡易睡床發揮莫大功能,災民安身更安心。有鑑於此,在上人數數指導下,由靜思團隊設計之簡易床,歷經多時,不斷改良,終至成熟。

    其特色為離地墊高30公分,可以免受濕濘所困;四邊鏤空設計,既減輕重量亦增加通風性;又考量每每共業一至,無分老幼病弱,故選擇具食品等級的PP材料,對人體皮膚完全不會造成傷害;復於造形設計上,或坐或臥皆適宜,收納方便,便於攜帶,具多功能效用。

    該產品已於201311月間發生的菲律賓海燕風災中,救拔無數災民得離水厄、傳染病襲之苦,讓災民擁有尊嚴生活同時,學會感恩與付出愛。 

二.以悲啟智,拔苦與樂

        此床因緣,緣苦眾生,見苦,啟大悲心,擎大願力行。苦之所集,大愛之所聚,福之所蔭,竭眾人心力、智慧,縝密思量,以有形之物濟無形之育,使一物發揮無量功能,於災難來時,拔苦與樂,安頓災民身心;苦既拔已復說法,引導災民省思災厄禍端,肇源人心,清淨意念才是離苦究竟。是故,上人正式命名為「福慧床」,以茲為念,以茲為礪。


    得獎,肯定了靜思產品不論在設計或品質上,水平已走在國際尖端;更象徵著佛法的大愛,應世間法器而遠播,無遠弗屆。





 Sincere Compassion Earns International Award

Jing Si Collapsible Multipurpose Folding Bed


The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany. There are prize categories for product design, communication design, and design concepts. The Red Dot Design Award is internationally recognized, just like Germany’s iF Award and the American IDEA Award. Every year, the Red Dot Design Award receives more than 10,000 submissions from over 60 countries. In 2014, out of 4815 submissions from 1816 manufacturers, the Jing Si collapsible multipurpose folding bed was selected by the competition’s 40-member jury as the winner of the top quality award.


Behind the joy of winning the award, there is a moving story filled with warmth and love.


 Timely Help For Disaster Survivors

 In the summer of 2010, Pakistan was devastated by a severe flood. From one of the videos on disaster relief taken by Tzu Chi volunteers, there was a footage showing a baby girl wrapped in a thin piece of cloth lying on the cold, wet ground. Seeing the image, Master Cheng Yen felt deeply for the infant and numerous others who suffer from natural disasters. She discussed disaster relief solutions with Tzu Chi volunteers, and thought of designing a portable bed for disaster survivors. The volunteers thus designed and produced such a bed, and nearly ten thousand sets of the portable bed were distributed at the aid distributions held in Pakistan for the flood survivors. The beds provided the survivors a safe and secure place to sleep on. Under Master Cheng Yen’s guidance, Tzu Chi’s design team made further improvements on the design of the portable bed and finally came out with the Jing Si collapsible multipurpose folding bed.  


The multipurpose folding bed is 30 centimeters high so it can stay dry on wet ground. Its fretwork top and sides makes it lightweight and also allows for good ventilation. Made of skin-friendly polypropylene, the folding bed can be used for sitting and sleeping, and it can be easily folded and transported.   


In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Philippines in November, 2013, the Jing Si collapsible multipurpose folding bed provided much relief for countless typhoon survivors who were rendered homeless by the disaster, and helped prevent the spread of flood-related diseases. As Tzu Chi helped bring dignity and hope to the lives of the survivors, they in turn learned to be grateful and give of themselves to help others in need.  



A Bed of Blessing and Wisdom 

It is with the aim of providing relief to the suffering that the Jing Si collapsible multipurpose folding bed was invented. Witnessing suffering, Tzu Chi aspires to help those in need. Combining the strength and wisdom of many Tzu Chi members, Jing Si collapsible multipurpose folding bed is designed to serve as an indispensable disaster relief item with many functions. In times of disasters, the benefits it provides help people feel settled and secure. After relieving people of their suffering, it is important to guide them to understand that human greed is the cause of many disasters and help them realize that purifying people’s hearts and minds is the ultimate solution. With this in mind, Master Cheng Yen named the folding bed “Bed of Blessing and Wisdom”.     



The Red Dot Award gives international recognition to the Jing Si product as being top in quality and design. It also symbolizes the Buddha’s world-transcending compassion behind Jing Si products for disaster relief.
