Mission Statement

Our interpretation of collectible design, curation, galleries and more.

Collectible Design.

We consistently surround ourselves with objects and designs that display an essence of who we are. We become emotionally engaged with these works, especially when they tell such compelling narratives, which is exactly what collectible design achieves. Sitting at the nexus of art and design, a collectible object carries strength and stance to demand that extra second glance, much more than any ordinary object. The contextual work manifests a strong concept in a relevant moment of time and thus contributes to the history of design. These pieces, produced at a limited quantity, possess meticulous craftmanship with a high attention to details in process, materials and form. With each piece being unique from the next, they all manage to share one common denominator – to shape a narrative that resonates with their audience.

"It is the narrative expression and charm that captures their imagination, and on which their emotional attachment is founded. The value of collectible design, however it might be determined or defined, is not really understood by its cost at all; its value comes to live when it is lived with and loved, used and cherished"

Macdonald Hugo

Collectible design, simply put, is Objects With Narratives.

Our Role As Curators.

The role of a curator, historically defined as caretaker, has evolved over time to become much more complex. Today, a curator must organize, guide, and advise potential buyers for pieces that suit their style, taste and need, all whilst simultaneously following new and developing trends in the design world. Thousands of new objects are being designed and made globally every day, and it is the curator’s responsibility to carefully select, acquire and oversee potential narratives to inspire its audience through developing noteworthy collections, exhibits and publications. Acting as facilitators, they nurture artists in several ways, from helping their vision come to life, to connecting them with other artists across different fields, creating new opportunities and understanding the designer’s goal and objective of their work and studio. Only then can curators and designers reach a symbiotic relationship which is paramount to OWN.

At Objects With Narratives, the designer comes first. Starting as designers ourselves, we understand the effort put into the different stages of designing, modelling, failing and successfully making outstanding pieces. Therefore, our view is that our designers are simply not just a number, and all deserve our utmost attention. OWN aims to curate the work of household names to young up and coming designers who have limited exposure or notoriety, so long as each designer has a strong ethos behind their way of work. Similarly, our services vary depending on the level of support the designer needs. From sales and marketing to logistics and production, we support an engaging network of designers for collaborative efforts. Our designers
