Equity Trustees, managers of the Cicely & Colin Rigg Bequest, the charitable trust supporting the triennial Rigg Design Prize, congratulates Adam Goodrum for receiving the 2015 Prize.
The Rigg Design Prize, announced today by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), is the most prestigious accolade for contemporary furniture and object design in Australia, awarding $30,000 to an Australian designer.
Mr Goodrum won the Rigg Design Prize for his work ‘Unfolding’ which features a series of translucent folding house structures overlaid with a film that makes the structure reflect colourful shimmering images on the gallery walls.
“We are delighted to be involved in the Rigg Design Prize and congratulate Adam on receiving it for his work ‘Unfolding
’ which is a visually stunning piece. We hope people will visit the exhibition at the NGV showcasing the extraordinary designs of all seven Rigg Design Prize entrants, including Adam’s,” said Tabitha Lovett, General Manager of Philanthropy at Equity Trustees.
