Recognising excellence in Australian design, the Rigg Design Prize is the highest accolade for contemporary design in Australia. The triennial prize is awarded to an Australian design practice displaying outstanding creative achievements in contemporary design.
The shortlist for the Rigg Design Prize 2018 includes ten Australian design studios working in the field of interior design and decoration. For the prize exhibition, each studio has been invited to design a purpose built interior that responds to the 2018 exhibition theme of Domestic Living. The NGV is asking each design studio to produce an interior capable of communicating to audiences how designers create interiors as forms of communication embedded with values, ideas and stories that directly engage with the cultural, historical, material and technological aspects of society.
To celebrate Design and Technology Week enjoy a guided walk through the Rigg Design Prize 2018 led by an NGV Educator, followed by a presentation from shortlisted designer Danielle Brustman about her practice and submission .
