Dowel Jones: Lucky dip

Lamington Drive is pleased to present Lucky Dip by Dowel Jones.

Dowel Jones is a Melbourne design brand founded by Dale Hardiman and Adam Lynch in 2013. With their unique, simplified approach to commercial furniture, they have furnished homes and interiors worldwide while scooping up a national and international roster of awards and collaborations.

Lucky Dip draws inspiration from $2 and reject shops to create a series of brand new gift shop objects. These objects will be concealed within a sea of boxes that could contain anything from a chopping board to a table, for participants to claim. Much like a visit to a $2 shop, you’re bound to go home with something that you never knew you needed, but may hold a special place in your heart and home.

Through the Lucky Dip gift shop, Dowel Jones continues to explore the construction and context of space as an integral part of how object design is experienced. Having recently collaborated with New York artist Tom Hancocks to conceive a VR environment to showcase furniture, Lucky Dip is yet again another avenue of exhibiting and framing objects or products in environments outside traditional confines. As you enter the store, a series of prints that depict imagined spaces with one foot in the familiar and the other in new territory, will also be available for purchase.
