Ute is the brand that brings you Design that works™. Led by Product Designer Kain Lucas and based in Melbourne Australia, Ute manufactures Australian products designed for use, with high levels of quality and aesthetic refinement.
Ute was born out of our philosophy that great design is achieved when the form of the object, the materials from which it is made and the method of manufacture used all share equal status, are all interrelated and reliant on one another to make the object what it is.
This approach to design demonstrates that design can be decorative and useful, and that a well designed object possesses an inherent beauty that is beyond aesthetic.
