On Thursday 17 September 2015, Gijs Bakker and Wava Carpenter seated the jury for the annual Rigg Design Prize at the NGV Australia.
Recognising excellence in contemporary design, the Rigg Design Prize is the highest accolade for object and furniture design in Australia.
International contemporary designers Gijs Bakker (The Netherlands) and Wava Carpenter (USA), judged the Rigg Design Prize 2015 and awarded the accolade to Adam Goodrum for his work Unfolding. Adam will receive the $30,000 cash prize.
The judges commented ‘Adam’s work proves that design has the potential for the unexpected and the new. Unfolding is very exciting, pushing the boundaries of what design can be with its dreamy, hazy and poetic atmosphere. We hope that the public will be as surprised and delighted by Adam’s work as we were.’
