Object Utility is a small industrial design studio. We design and make functional furniture and products that facilitate daily life rather than just decorate it.

Since 2007 we've designed our products by a process of reduction and simplicity, to make things that work and last. User-centred design is at the heart of our creative approach. We think holistically about how people will interact with our products; resulting in objects which are easily assembled, used, dismantled and transported. The ultimate goal is to achieve a noticeable effect using as few elements as possible – to simplify life through design.

It's important that we're thoughtful and considerate with every design and manufacturing decision in order to minimise our environmental impact, and support local industry. Our workshop is on a small farm on Victoria’s South West Coast.

We don’t believe in style over substance, taking short cuts or big egos.
