100 Objects: Australian Design in the Home is an exhibition that was presented at Walsh Street in October 2019. The exhibition was developed in collaboration with Monash University lecturer, curator, and collector, Ian Wong. Ian’s ongoing research and story-telling on Australian design is accessible via his ispyid Instagram account.

The 100 Objects exhibition lead to a series of interviews with leading Australian designers, mostly recorded at Walsh Street. These interviews were then incorporated into an exhibition (presented in-gallery and online) for Design Tasmania. Both exhibitions featured significant pieces of Australian design history from Ian’s vast collection.

A virtual tour of the exhibition includes annotations of the objects and embedded videos with some of Australia’s leading designers.
