Unbox 3 at R Gallery

Manila Philippines are you ready?! get ready for 37 Filipino toy designers to gather to unleash their out of the box creative output on a single platform! Unbox 3, the latest iteration of a successful toy exhibition that brings together some of the most renowned names in the designer toy genre opens at R Gallery with a wider selection of artists, studios, and designers, and a more diverse set of fabricated forms that draw inspiration across pop culture, science-fiction, consumerism, and other aspects of contemporary society.

The title Unbox describes the act of unpacking contents, a process of revealing surprises of sorts. But here, the box is not merely a receptacle for handling, transporting or storage—it is an integral part of the object itself. Each piece comes with its own customized box that serves as a platform and at times an extension of the toy’s form and composition.

It is no longer auxiliary nor disposable excesses of purchase, but an entire medium of expression. These toys represent the intersections of art, design, mass production, and craftsmanship, as well as the plurality and hybridity of media and artistic expressions that characterize our time. 

The show proudly features the works of AKI, Artcade JL, Canstoys, CHKDSK, ClayGough, EF, Entsong Creations, EmNworX, FAUST, Gemart Ortega, Guibs, Humbly, JonT, JMV Art Figure, King Racha, KNKOO, Niakie.Meow, Node75, Mad Monkey, Madd Creatives, Master Rocker Customs, Mankeeboi, Mechdesigns, Memastudioxb, Pissquidhead, The Plastic Fable, Psyc, Slack, Steffi Ü, Smile Crafts, Resinworx Customlab, Rlux Customs, Wehkid, Winvill, Wuji Toys, Yama, and Zteg.

WHEN: The exhibition opens on Friday, May 6,

WHERE: at R Gallery, Unit 301 Marius Acropoli Building, 140 Katipunan Avenue, St. Ignatius, Quezon City.  All art works are for sale individually and you can also get them by set (toy and the painting) for more details on how to purchase the items showcased you can visit R Gallery Facebook page at
