A Collection for the Ages

We’re proud to present our latest custom project, a collaboration with Minna Gilligan for the Melbourne Museum’s ‘Revolutions: Records and Rebels’.

Have you spotted our latest custom project with Minna Gilligan at the Melbourne Museum yet? We worked with the amazing (and-ever colourful) Australian artist to produce a collection of functional art objects for Revolutions: Records and Rebels to reflect the late 1960s movement. As detailed by the Melbourne Museum, the exhibition developed by the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London is a considered journey that looks back on a time “when youth culture drove optimistic idealism, motivating people to come together and question the establishment across every area of society.” 

The accompanying collection with Minna features works that referenced particular 1960s aesthetics; a balance between psychedelia and, as described by Minna herself, “a nostalgia-laced misremembering”. The range includes pocket mirrors, handy bags & a tea towel guaranteed to brighten up any space. When we take on a custom project at Third Drawer Down, we always seek to bear the hallmarks of creative integrity and functionality. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Minna and we’re proud to say that together we’ve translated a monumental moment in time into purposeful products. 

You can catch the full collection at the Melbourne Museum gift shop, with Revolutions: Records and Rebels running until October 6th. If you’d like to get in touch about a custom project or collaboration, please send us an email via abi@thirddrawerdown.com
