The Australian Design Centre (formerly known as Object) is one of Australia’s leading institutions in the field of arts and design.
At the core of the institution’s activities is the need to cultivate a design culture by fostering innovation and the use of design in everyday life.

By embracing the work of talented local artists who are qualified in their respective fields, this centre for contemporary art continually elevates art culture in Australia. It is an excellent place for any visitor who wants to immerse themselves in Australia’s craftsmanship while getting ideas on how to advance their skills.
One fascinating aspect of touring the Australian Design Centre is that it hosts many exhibitions and events on a regular basis. From showcasing wearable crochet art to jewellery exhibitions in partnership with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, exhibitions that explore working with clay and even modern designs for wearable health technology, there is no shortage of events.
In addition to holding events and exhibitions, the Australian Design Centre has also taken to touring the country. These tours involve presenting the exhibitions, program events and research content across the country to engage new audiences.
The tours are an excellent option for visitors whose travel dates do not coincide with the exhibition dates hosted in Sydney. Some exhibitions have also gone global, making this one of the most effective platforms for the centre.
Visit the Object Shop on location at the William Street Gallery. The shop stocks the works of local designers, and each Saturday, offers an opportunity to meet the brains behind the different designs.
