Object 150

Support a Local Maker

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:
Felix GillHerbert & Friends | Katherine Mahoney | Love and WestMilly Dent | Nicole Robins | Sylvia Riley | Vanessa Ion

Total cost of the work is $150 plus GST and postage, as required. No postage charge for pick up.
ADC is not taking a commission on sales. We are passing 100% onto 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.
