BCDO invites you to engage with a suite of novel objects that are intentionally frustrating to use as an individual, but come to life through cooperation.

Blomley Cashman Design Office (BCDO) presents Co//Operate, an interactive exhibition exploring the role of objects as conduits for connection. Co//Operate encourages visitors to contemplate how our spaces and things can influence our relationships in post-lockdown Melbourne. How can our environment be the catalyst that helps shared experience overcome the walls of caution that we learned to erect? BCDO imagines furniture that serves as a tool to heal community in a world that is unnavigable when alone, but rewards collaboration. In this world, you have permission to consider how play, humour and courage can facilitate the joy of exploring the unknown.
