Objects With Narratives


Objects With Narratives is a 'Nomad Gallery' for designers by designers, that believes in shifting the incentive of design from aesthetics and function to objects powered by narratives. On rare occasions, one can become engaged with a piece to a level beyond flash, when they start to create a deeper bond with the object. Storytelling does this far more powerful than esthetical or functional considerations alone. With this approach, objects become merely the medium where it is more about owning a narrative rather than the physical object.

Therefore we believe in shifting the incentive of design to objects powered by narratives. Hence our platform’s name Objects With Narratives... OWN is neither a niche gallery nor a stand alone commercial shop. In between those worlds, OWN creates its own hybrid genre. A platform that concentrates on the value and the story of the pieces itself rather than the name, style or era of the designers that represent the objects. We make uncommon & collectible design pieces accessible for everyone around the world in a transparent and reasonable way, while taking care of their designers needs. We thus provide a creative space actively empowers bold creators to present their story-driven work through an interactive web shop, other online channels and physical exhibitions around the world. We work together with household names as with young designers who don’t have or have a limited following and notoriety, as long as each designer has a strong narrative behind their work and practice. Our services vary depending on the level of support the designer needs. We will be able to offer sales and marketing, logistic and production options. The designers benefit from a large network of other designers that they can collaborate with.
