Gallery All - A New Contemporary Design Gallery Opens in Downtown Los Angeles

3 May – 3 August '14

Los Angeles

Gallery ALL is pleased to announce the opening of its new 2,400 square foot gallery with a two-person exhibition of new work by the celebrated Chinese designers Naihan Li and Zhoujie Zhang. This inaugural exhibition marks the first-ever stateside show for both designers and is reflective of Gallery All’s overall mission: to introduce exceptional works of contemporary furniture and showcase the most cutting-edge, experimental design from around the world.

The dynamic space will feature a rotating program of large-scale exhibitions, events and presentations, from an international cadre of designers, artists, and architects located in the historic Bradbury building in the heart of downtown Los Angeles at 304 South Broadway.

“There are many young, talented, and promising designers all over the world, but very few get the chance to present their works to a global market,” explains Qinqyun Ma, co-founder of Gallery ALL. “By fusing the worlds of art and design, we are creating a lifestyle that crosses cultural and economic boundaries, providing them with a platform in Los Angeles and the opportunity to reach an international audience,” adds Ma.

For Gallery ALL’s inaugural exhibition, Naihan Li and Zhoujie Zhang present new bodies of work, expanding on their most notable designs.

Naihan Li, known for her practicality and multi-purpose work, will present a series of furniture that replicates finely finished shipping containers made of stainless steel, which open to reveal instantly functional household and office environments. Known at The CRATES series, Li has expanded on the collection for Gallery ALL to include a writing desk, tea table, and sofa bed. Inspired by Beijing’s ever-shifting urban landscape as well as the transient lifestyle shared by most Chinese today, Li’s versatile designs are mobile enough to easily roll in to any studio, loft, or gallery space.

Zhoujie Zhang, though trained in classical arts, is widely recognized for his futuristic designs, perhaps even calling galactic travel to mind. Zhang’s practice emphasizes the role of the computer and utilizes parametric mathematics to digitally generate permutations of his design, all created in his in-house studio, the “Digital Lab.” For Gallery ALL, Zhang created his iconic stainless steel furniture series Triangulation Series in brass for the first time. The collection, is comprised of four multi-faceted chair models and one table design, aptly titled Digital Tornado, each produced in a limited edition of 12 pieces.

“We are curating our collection by choosing individual pieces that are truly unique. Rather than following a set of industry rules or traditions, our approach is more playful and spirited, treating the designs we find interesting as part of the enrichment of our daily lives,” continues Xiao Lu, managing partner of Gallery ALL, Los Angeles.

Qinqyun Ma and his partner, co-founder Yu Wang, share a similar attitude in that they are constantly challenging boundarie­s—be it through the exploration of materials, non-traditional processes, or the fascination with bold and experimental designs—their collective purpose is to introduce the world to design that is remarkably distinctive from what is currently offered in the mass market.
