Object 150 - Marika Svikis
Have a unique object created for you for $150 and support a local maker
Makers and designers are doing it tough with their usual marketplaces in galleries, shops and markets cancelled and closed during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The ADC team are working passionately to implement opportunities for our designers to recover creatively and financially, and reach out to their audiences. Help us help our makers!
Object 150 is where craft and design lovers pay $150 to have a work created exclusively for you by one of our makers. The work will be an original, unique, handmade object created during Covid-19 by the maker for you.
Current makers include: Herbert & Friends | Milly Dent | Nicole Robins | Sylvia Riley | Vanessa Ion | Jude Love | Felix Gill | Katherine Mahoney | Marika Svikis | Hayden Youlley | TRADE the MARK | Zara Collins | Emily Copp
Total cost of the work is $150 plus GST and postage, as required. No postage charge for pick up. No commission goes to ADC on this project. We are passing 100% of the sale to the maker.
Delivery time is 4 weeks from order placement. We will advise you once the item is ready for shipping by Australia Post, or pickup by appointment from Australian Design Centre.
A shout out to our friends at subjectmatterart.com in London from whom we shamelessly borrowed the idea! You can support their Lockdown Commissions here.
Svikis. | is wearable architecture; embracing technology to push the boundaries and reach new possibilities in jewellery design.
3D printed, genderless collections of rings, pendants and earrings feature recurring themes, drawing upon influence from Japanese architecture, sculpture, minimalism and geometry. Beautiful objects in their own right, each svikis. piece is designed with architectural precision, with clean lines and unique textured finishes.
Established in 2017 in Sydney, svikis. was founded by Marika Svikis, a designer and technologist with a background in architecture. Now instead of designing buildings, Marika is using 3D printing and jewellery as a medium to explore her love of clean minimalist edges, surfaces, and corner details.
