About

Discover and take part in the making-of story behind each limited edition object, exclusive to Up Side Up.

We tap into designers’ research processes – the ideas, materials and techniques they encounter through their work – and develop them into unique objects.

All our objects are designed exclusively for Up Side Up, produced in limited, numbered editions. We launched in October 2013 with our first two objects and collaborate regularly with graphic designers to release collections of objects each year.

To make each object, we rely on your individual investment by committing to buy up-front. Your money goes directly into paying for the designs to go into production. Only the objects with enough demand from buyers will be made.

Follow us and explore this website to discover the story behind each object: the designers’ inspiration and ideas, how they collaborate with makers and manufacturers – the process of bringing an interesting object from their sketchbook to your door.

We invite graphic designers whose work and ideas we love to develop an Up Side Up object.

How?

How does it work?

The journey from ‘Eureka!’ moment, through sketchbook, to prototype is documented as the idea becomes a finished design and we share this with you.

A limited edition of the objects goes on sale on upsideup.co.uk, where for one month everyone has the chance to pre-order an object.

As soon as the edition sells out, the tills close and the magic happens – the money goes into making the objects come to life.

And finally, everyone who bought an object receives it in the post – beautifully made, wrapped, packed and ready for its new home.
