Exceptionally useful; occasionally functional

Useful Objects is a gallery specialising in collectible design, working with and exhibiting designers who tell the compelling stories of our time, through objects that challenge the norms of function and materials in sophisticated and unexpected ways.

Addressing a gap in the local context, Useful Objects is a co-op gallery, creating deeper opportunities for designer-makers in creating and presenting collectible design in Australia.

Useful Objects provides these designers a base for the public to engage with their practices, through the exhibition, promotion and representation of their work.

Useful Objects attracts collectors, creative leaders and agencies who seek objects that align with their cultural values and interests. It attracts those who want to expand their collections with objects that engage with the issues and conversations of today, and contribute to the history of art and design in Australia.
