《南聊》 OOuuu\兩眼一起

【從不只是一間文具店!】- OOuuu\兩眼一起

受訪人:Umar
地址:台南市中西區開山路118號3F
台南人。

2016年5月從新美街搬到開山路的兩眼一起,2012年11月原先開在大同路上。一開始Umar和溫溫只想要擁有一間設計工作室,不過原先的空間是護膚工作室,因此有大面的落地窗,透過窗戶經過的人常常都被他們擺放的物件和陳列的方式吸引,想進來一探究竟的人越來越多,因此工作室漸漸變成半開放的店面。

OOuuu兩眼一起原先的名字只有OOuuu,是溫溫在紙上畫下的圖案,Umar被其圖像上的趣味吸引,因此文字化成工作室的名字。但又因為很多人都想知道中文名字到底是什麼,Umar便用google搜尋o和u之後便會得到醫學名稱:兩眼一起。

搬到開山路後,將原先兩眼一起的餐具獨立出來成為「兩餐間」。兩餐間不僅延伸兩眼一起的醫學名,更如同其名的販售適合在「兩餐之間」食用的餐點和份量。

Umar說在成立兩眼一起前其實他對於文具沒有太多研究或者要求,對他來說實用性是最重要的。而當代文具最主要的製造國家分別為日本、美國和德國,Umar尤其偏好西德時期的文具設計,其中的巧思和細節,在趣味和設計間總能取得恰到好處的平衡。溫溫則在文具的挑選上著重於造型和配色。

對於Umar來說了解文具廠牌背後的歷史和故事是很迷人的,因此在兩眼一起的臉書或者店內都可以看到許多詳盡的介紹,宛若一本文具的百科指南。

兩眼一起從來都不只是一間文具店,賣的都是Umar和溫溫精選的生活用品。店裡的陳列風格呈現出他們認為生活空間應該有的模樣,同時也是生活道具使用的最佳範例。如果你也對於生活充滿想像、喜歡嘗試,兩眼一起往往都能帶給你驚喜。

放假的時候Umar只想往人少的地方去:玉井天文館、龍
吃飯也要去不希望太多人知道的:五號樹屋、輕輕的素

OOuuu Studio moved from Xinmei St. to Kaishan Rd. this year in May, was first opened on Datong Rd. in Nov, 2012. Umar and Wenwen thought they were opening a design studio in the beginning, but since the place had huge window that people was often being attracted by the things they have inside, more and more people want to take a closer look so they officially made the place half opened as a shop, while also kept the studio for themselves.

OOuuu wasn’t a real name for the studio, it was pattern which Wenwen painted on the paper then Umar thought it looked interesting and it became the name of the studio naturally. It is somehow difficult for people to pronounce or memorize a place only within English name, Umar therefore use character u and o to Google, therefore comes the Chinese name of the place which literally means ‘between two eyes ’ and used in Medical.

After moved to Kaishan Rd., Umar and Wenwen divided tableware selling on the second floor and named the place ‘Between two meals’ which came from similar concept as ‘between two eyes’. Besides tableware, they also offer foods and desserts which are suitable to have when you crave for something between two meals, delicious but not too much.

Umar said he wasn’t a fan of stationery before he opened OOuuu, all he cared about was whether the thing he’s using is practical. Three main countries which produce stationery nowadays are Japan, USA and Germany. Umar prefers stationery from West Germany Period, he finds that stationery from West Germany often have nice balance between the creativity and functional. Unlike Umar, for Wenwen the design and color would be the priority when selecting. Umar thinks it matters not only to sell stationery but also introduce the story and history behind it. Therefore, it is always interesting to see the detailed information of stationery on their facebook fanpage and when shopping in their store.

OOuuu Studio is never just a stationery store, all the products are selected by Umar and Wenwen in a way to make everyone’s living in a better way. The way how they display and decorate the place shows the perfect example what they think shall be the best. If you are also full of imagination toward living, always interested in trying new things, OOuuu can always bring you surprises every time you visit.

When the studio is closed, Umar prefer going to place not too crowded, such as: Planetarium in Yujing, Long-Chi

For dining he also prefers places not too famous for tourists like: No.5 Tree House, A Little Veg
