2011 — Object’s Digital Year
Monday February 13 2012
2011 was a big year for Object. In addition to continuing a strong exhibition and touring program (as I write this there are six Object exhibitions open around the country) and developing and piloting our landmark primary education program Design Emergency, we have had some terrific achievements in the digital realm.
The first, of course, was back in February with the launch of Object magazine issue 60. After an eighteen month hiatus, the magazine returned in a digital form, published as a free iPad app. We were delighted when it appeared as a Staff Pick in Apple’s App Store, and even more delighted as the numbers of downloads soared past the printed figures — this shift to digital has seen many more people able to easily engage with contemporary design from Australia and around the world. Exciting also was the realisation that it is not just people in Australia who are reading the magazine — people from every corner of the globe are finding it and enjoying it. Last count was 65 countries and climbing.
Welcome To Object Online!

Welcome to the brand spanking new Object website! We’ve spent the last few months working hard to make the best website we can to highlight not only the exhibitions and programs, both in Sydney and through our Touring program, that Object has become so well known for over its almost fifty year history, but also its Learning activities, magazine, Audio Design Museum tours and much more.
Plus, we have relaunched Object Eye. This section used to be housed in the printed magazine, but since going digital earlier this year, we have decided the only way to keep you up to date on those smaller, more immediate bits of news and information is through a blog – Object Eye will become your go-to place for all of your design news, reviews and information, keeping you up to date not only with Object’s goings on, but with that of the art, craft and design world at large.
