Recognising excellence in contemporary Australian design, the Rigg Design Prize is the highest accolade for object and furniture design in Australia. The triennial prize is awarded to an Australian designer displaying outstanding creative achievements in contemporary design practice.

This year, Rigg Design Prize features 10 outstanding Australian practitioners working in the field of interior design and decoration. Each Australian designer creates a single purpose built interior responding to the theme of Domestic Living, which expresses their ideas, values and vision.

The Rigg Design Prize winner for 2018 is decided by an international judge. Announced at the opening of the exhibition, the winner is judged on their philosophy and design expertise formed in relation to interior architecture, interiority, decoration and the use of materials, processes, tools, methods, traditions and aesthetics.

The Rigg Design Prize is generously supported by the Cicely and Colin Rigg Bequest.
