Gallery ALL is pleased to launch of its new 5,400 square foot Beijing gallery with a solo exhibition of the celebrated designer-architects Aranda\Lasch last Tuesday, August 12th.
The exhibition, dubbed “Crystal Rules,” is a retrospective of Benjamin Aranda and Chris Lasch, centered on their ongoing exploration of crystallographic structure, modularity, and material expression. The show presents new works alongside their iconic Primitives and Quasi series, systems of identical geometric shapes configured in a multitude of arrangements. Several new pieces are grown out of the duo’s continuing collaboration with the artist Matthew Ritchie, but the show also includes one piece that evolves their signature modular style in a new direction: the seamless curved stainless steel “Scallop Table.”
As the first design gallery that has branches in Los Angeles and Beijing, Gallery ALL will dedicate to facilitating the dialogue of design between the East and the West, showcasing the most cutting-edge works from artists all over the world. In case you missed the gallery opening, here’s a pictorial recap:
