Pilosophy

The name 100A(Baek-ei) is the design philosophy we pursue in life. ‘100’ combines the meanings of 百 and 白¹ to convey the sum of these two characters as a return to zero or pure emptiness, which symbolizes the overall logic of the universe². 百, 白, and the number 100 are all pronounced ‘Baek’ in Korean. During the ancient days of Korea, 百 meant everything or all, representing the entirety of the universe. The character 白 originally meant ‘nothingness’ and the ‘A’ of 100A represents our attitudes and answers towards these symbols that hold various implications. Essentially, 100A defines our perspectives, attitudes about aesthetics, and also stands as a record of communication, in consideration of the overall logic of the universe.

1) 百, means the number 100 & 白, means the color white.
2) The logic of the universe: the interpretative thoughts and ideas of all phenomena that occur in space and in human life.

100A라는 이름은 우리가 추구하는 디자인철학이다. 100은 百과 白, 두 가지의 뜻을 합하여 아무것도 아닌 것이 천지의 모든 이치라는 의미를 상징한다. 한국어로 百과 白 그리고 100은 모두 ’백‘이라 발음된다. 옛날 한국에서 百은 전부 또는 모두라는 의미로 사용되었고, 천지의 모든 이치를 상징했다. 또 白은 아무것도 아닌 것, nothingness와 같은 의미를 상징했다. A는 100이라는 함축적인 상징을 대하는 우리의 태도Attitude와 해답Answer의 의미를 담고 있다. 즉, 100A는 시간과 장소를 초월하는 순수성(천지의 모든 이치)과 그것들을 대하는 미학적 의견과 태도 그리고 그것들과 소통을 통한 기록이라는 의미이다.

천지의 모든 이치 : 우주와 인간생활의 모든 현상과 생성소멸을 해석하는 사상
