Design affects the way we live, improving the way we look, move, work and feel – from furniture, to gadgets, clothing and housing. Increasingly though, design is being called upon to deliver more than utility and beauty.

Design is now stepping up to the challenges the world is throwing at us, showing us the way to a better future.

Object: Australian Design Centre has partnered with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and UTS to present this major exhibition in Sydney. CUSP features Chris Bosse, Healthabitat, Leah Heiss, George Khut, Anupama Kundoo, MaterialByProduct, Greg More, Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller, Stephen Mushin, Alison Page, Super Critical Mass and Mari Velonaki.
