Object Shop is Australian Design Centre’s retail space for handmade contemporary craft and design. We stock a curated collection of locally designed and handmade ceramics, jewellery, textiles, glass, homewares, publications and more. Object Shop represents the work of over 100 emerging and established makers and designers, both from Sydney and across Australia.
TEMPORARY CLOSURE: Following NSW Government advice, Australian Design Centre and Object Shop are currently closed due to Sydney's Covid-19 lockdown.
OBJECT SHOP ONLINE is still open. During this time, you can continue to support Australian makers by shopping online 24/7, and keep an eye on our social platforms for updates.
We're relaunching our award winning commissioning project Object 150 to support makers through the continued Sydney lockdown.
Object 150 is where you pay $150 to have an original, unique, handmade object created exclusively for you by one of our makers.
Our featured makers for October are Chrystie Longworth and Outer Island.
Total cost of the work is $150 plus GST and postage, as required.
