Dowel Jones: Lucky Dip

Part art exhibition, part lucky dip.

Collingwood gallery Lamington Drive has been busy installing its latest exhibition, Lucky Dip.

Created by Melbourne design brand Dowel Jones, the interactive exhibition draws its inspiration from $2 shops and childhood lucky dips. Concealed within a sea of brown boxes, are objects designed specifically for the show — as well as some classic Dowel Jones pieces and collaborations — that you can actually take home.

Pay either $20 or $50, write your name on a sticker, bang it on a box of your choosing, and you could the proud new owner of a kitchen table — or a teaspoon. For those participating, be warned: the size of the box doesn't automatically correspond to the size of the object within.

If you'd like to get first pick of the lucky dip, head along to the opening reception, which will be held from 6–9pm on Wednesday, August 22. The draw will then be called when the exhibition wraps up on Saturday, September 15, upon when you can return to claim your lucky dip prize.
