“If you don’t make someone feel something then you have failed.”

One of Melbourne’s leading design practices, headed by directors Paul Hecker and Hamish Guthrie, has created a domestic landscape that centres simply and completely around the table – the table as surface, the table as support, the table as enclosure.

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.
