Opening night – ‘Lucky Dip’ by Dowel Jones

Melbourne based design duo Dale Hardiman and Adam Lynch, founders of our favourite- Dowel Jones, brought Lucky Dip to the gallery this week! Converting the space from gallery to gift shop, they created a series of objects, concealing each of them within a sea of boxes for lucky participants to unknowingly claim.

Within the vibrantly painted red walls, participants experienced a new shopping and exhibition experience outside of traditional confines. We had a line of lucky dippers out the door on the opening night, waiting to choose either a $20 or $50 Lucky Dip ticket, and then claiming a box to call their own.

We’re sure that we aren’t the only ones excited for Sat Sep 15 to come, the big unveiling of Lucky Dip prizes!

Thanks to every one for the good company!

We’ve spoken so much about the Lucky Dip boxes, but we haven’t given these Dowel Jones prints the recognition the deserve! 

Some lovely lucky-dippers.

Cheers you guys!

September 15 feels like a life time away.

Good times c/o Dowel Jones and everyone that made it out!

And that’s a wrap on the night! Show continues till Sep 15 so there’s still time to take the dip!
