Sisters Katy Svalbe and Yasmine Ghoniem are the duo behind Amber Road, a design studio with the ethos ‘The art of living simply. Inside and Out.’

Amber Road’s interior space for Rigg Design Prize 2018 explores and celebrates the interconnectedness of inside and outside spaces, in particular ‘the porch’ and ‘the veranda’. It is a deeply personal reflection on the ‘Australian way of living’ inspired by their shared childhood memories.

In the first major presentation of contemporary interior design in the NGV’s history, the Rigg Design Prize 2018 brings together ten leading Australian interior designers and decorators to each create a purpose-built room at NGV International from 11 October 2018 until 24 February 2019.

The Rigg Design Prize is generously supported by the Cicely and Colin Rigg Bequest, managed by Equity Trustees.
