An Aboriginal Culinary Journey: Designed for Living was an exhibition of objects from the National Museum of Australia's collection alongside a commissioned range of appliances featuring stunning designs from contemporary artists.

The exhibition was a partnership between First Nations peoples, Breville (known as Sage in the United Kingdom and Europe) and the National Museum of Australia. It featured objects for the heart of the home that celebrated contemporary design and reflected 65,000 years of ongoing Indigenous culture.
