To celebrate the start of the new season, Ubi Gallery has put together a selection of the best Dutch designs to highlight creative flower arrangements. On the different tables you will find stylish handmade glasses, bowls, vases and cups. For this exhibition Ubi Gallery collaborated with the famous brand Droog Design.
The pop-up will also present the Mazha folding stools by Studio Henny van Nistelrooy. Based on the traditional Chinese folding stool they have made a contemporary version in a vibrant exploration of pattern and color. Combining traditional furniture with contemporary design makes for an attractive interior accessory.
We are celebrating Spring by launching our webstore. You can buy online products from our collection of affordable creative pieces. For special products we still invite you to visit us during our exhibitions.
Most of the products you can find online are made in small series or unique. So if you find something - be quick! We will update the online collection frequently.

The collection of Ubi Gallery is expanded with some glass objects. First of all the great series by Li Wai of Studio KDSZ. The concept of the series comes from different types of traditional Chinese containers, such as vases, glasses and bowls. The design tried to bring the beauty of tradition into modern daily life. When the cup is filled with your drink, the traditional shape shows up.
JUST ONE MORE
In august 2013 Ubi Gallery presented the results of the first Asian graduation competition for jewellery students. In JUST ONE MORE we will see the results of a year hard work of the winners Sungho Cho (Korea - München) and He Jing (China - Amsterdam). In their new collection they both use found objects. The work of Åsa Elmstam (Sweden – worked in Japan) is a nice addition to the exhibition with her different perspective on the theme of reuse in jewellery. With the work of these three young artists, we can present you a perfect mix of Chinese, Korean, Japenese, Swedish, Dutch, German influences in jewellery.
Sungho Cho will be in the gallery during the opening of the exhibition on Saturday Oct 25th and will give a presentation about his collection, from 14:30 onwards.
A part of the Shanghai Creative Industries Week at the Shanghai Exhibition Center is dedicated to a jewellery exhibition. Attached to the program is a day full of lectures, by Ezra Satok-Wolman, Evan Larson-Voltz, Machtelt Schelling.
precious particles and gruesome grit in applied arts
Amid the events taking place in Dashilar during Beijing Design Week, Ubi Gallery’s minimalist and stylish interior provides a calm sanctuary. This year, the gallery presents DUST INCLUDED, a thought-provoking exhibit of contemporary jewellery, ceramics and lifestyle goods, showcasing the work of 13 artists connected to China and The Netherlands.
DUST INCLUDED explores the theme of dust and pollution in Beijing and other megacities. Visitors are confronted by Joke Schole’s angry bear, who proclaims, ‘Clean up your own mess’. Other artists such as Liang Li treat dust as a byproduct of human failure, incorporating it into her work as an ‘Award for Bad Conduct’. Hortense de La Jonquière’s masterpiece—a cabinet constructed of Beijing dust—shows how dust captures memories, reminders of things past. Prominent milliner Elisabeth Koch adopts “crust” material used in environmental cleanup to create hats intended to deflect dust on a daily basis. The Dutch design collective of Eva de Laat, ByBorre and the University of Eindhoven propose futurist clothing to shield those living in polluted urban environments. Visitors will also find limited edition collector’s items and affordable gifts commissioned for the exhibit, as well as a portion of Ubi Gallery’s permanent collection.
Established in 2012, Ubi Gallery is a leading center for cultural and artistic exchange for established designers and rising Chinese talents in contemporary jewellery and ceramic design.
