Concept Object produce limited runs of exclusive objects to remain true to their ethos, valuing conscious production and quality.
Concept Object started after hearing the valve radios that Madeleine’s dad used to fix up in his shed. They hosted a listening evening with them, as designers the reaction they got from these once unloved objects and the life they brought to the space was inspiring. When people heard their own songs being played through these once broken bits of technology it created such a sense of wonder and belonging. Since that evening they haven't stopped searching for new ideas that spark that feeling again. Collaborating with reclamation yards, sustainable manufacturing, artists and independent makers to turn unwanted materials into conscious concepts and exclusive objects.
Striving to turn unwanted into exclusive - The materials for their OBJECTS are reclaimed or sustainably sourced, for example the drivers in the OBJ.No.01 came from a closed venue they worked to restore them to their full potential the only new parts are wires and terminals. The components in their partners amplifiers are all new and due diligence assembled to meet safety requirements.
Putting craft at the heart of their business, they travelled to Wales to work with a carpenter on OBJ.No.01 who learnt how to design speakers from his father and taught us the fundamentals of volume and renaissance. OBJ.No.06 is hand sculpted by a young ceramist in Walthamstow. Every object they sell has been touched by an independent maker and brought to life through collaboration.
From their materials, suppliers, collective of collaborators to the service they offer and customers they value, everyone who is part of Concept Object has appreciation of conscious spaces and simple design supporting our mission to seek sound and vision.
