Gallery ALL’s current exhibition by Chinese designer Naihan Li, “I AM A MONUMENT” is featured in Designboom. The article introduced Naihan Li’s new works, Edinburgh Palm House, NY Stock Exchange Shrine, Armillary Whisky Bar, The Pentagon Daybed and UN Building Bookcase. As the article mentioned, “Naihan Li continues to explore her artistic passions through design, developing furniture collections, which simultaneously entertain form and function.”
Indeed, I AM A MONUMENT originated from Naihan’s recognition of the Chinese desire for giant art installations in their homes. This collection shrinks a landmark building 100 times and turns it into a utilitarian furniture piece, allowing collectors to contain something that is extremely large inside a room of their house.
