Elliat Rich is a multi-disciplinary designer based in Alice Springs. With a practice covering cross-cultural resources, exhibition design, public art, furniture, product development and limited run objects, Rich is known for the intellectually rigorous conceptual foundations of her work. According to design writer Stephen Todd, Rich's design process is 'one of rapprochement – integrating and echoing the culture in which she executes her work'. Rich's works reflect her beliefs about the possibility of meaningful and peaceful collaboration. 

In 2016, Rich was commissioned to design chairs for The Pool at the Australian pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Designed by Rich, the Anerle-aneme chairs are handmade from strips of spray-painted black, ochre and blue steel by a team of seven craftspeople from the Centre for Appropriate Technology. Anerle-aneme means 'sit a little while' in the Arrernte language of central Australia.

This year, Rich has collaborated with Brazilian design superstars Fernando and Humberto Campana on Vitória Régia, produced with Aboriginal makers and commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) for the current NGV Triennial. She was also an exhibiting designer in the gallery's Designwork 01 exhibition (the inaugural in an ongoing series dedicated to exhibiting the best contemporary Australian design and presented as part of the NGV's Design Week) at Sophie Gannon Gallery in 2017.

Rich completed her Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW with first class honours in 2006. In 2014 she and her partner launched Elbowrkshp, a studio, retail space and workshop that they share with other creative professionals. She was awarded the Australian Furniture Design Award for her sculptural vanity, Place, 2017, which was acquired by the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Elliat Rich in Vogue Living

Elliat Rich is included in the November/December 2018 issue of Vogue Living in a Vogue Loves feature.

Standing mirror, 2018 (pictured), was photographed at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne by Sharyn Cairns and styled by Joseph Gardner. Part of Rich'sOther Places series, the work was first exhibited at the gallery for Designwork02, presented as part of the NGV's 2018 Melbourne Design Week. 

Standing mirror is a musing on Rich's observations of the 'distinct haze of the distant ranges ... that shifts from morning to dusk, from north to south'. As the mirrors the light, the colours blend, reflect, emerge. 'They are part illusion; a solid gas, the shadow of a mountain, part thing; a space for reflection', Rich explains. 

To enquire about works by Elliat Rich, please contact the gallery.

 


Elliat Rich in The Age

Elliat Rich is ‘producing some of the most authentic and original limited edition furniture in Australia’, according to NGV design curator Simon LeAmon. Ahead of her inclusion in the upcoming Designing Women exhibition at the NGV, Alice Springs-based Rich has been singled out as a leader in design, ‘charting an international practice from a very remote part of Australia’. Read the full exhibition preview published in The Age.

Designing Women, an exhibition showcasing design works by 50 female designers in the NGV’s collection, opens at the NGV on 28 September 2018 and runs until 24 March 2019. 


Elliat Rich at the National Gallery of Victoria

Elliat Rich's Weaver, 2018 (pictured) is included in Designing Women at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). Spanning nearly 40 years, from 1980 to 2018, the exhibition highlights the ongoing role of female designers as a dynamic and critical force in shaping contemporary design culture. The exhibition includes over 50 significant works of design from the NGV's collection.

Design writer Nicholas Carolan describes Weaver as a cylindrical shelf suspended from the ceiling that is sheathed in a curtain of turquoise synthetic fibre. Its 'magnetic qualities' are 'near irresistable' and 'amplified by the practical utility of the piece and its alien allure is heightened by the familiarity of the gesture that inspired it – the hair of curtain begging to be pulled back and tucked behind a metallic ‘ear’.'

Designing Women opens at the NGV on 28 September 2018 and runs until 24 March 2019. For further details, please click here.


Elliat Rich in Domus

Elliat Rich has been profiled in international design publication Domus. About Elliat's Other Places, recently exhibited at the gallery in Designwork 02 as part of the NGV's Melbourne Design Week, Philippa Nicole Barr writes, 'All of the works upheld Rich’s fascination with the local landscape and her interest in using design to craft a new vision of the future.'

Visit Domus to read about the magnetism of Central Australia and the way the central desert landscape where Elliat is based informs her work.

To enquire about works from Elliat's Other Places series, please contact the gallery.


Elliat Rich at the National Gallery of Victoria

Elliat Rich's Anerle-aneme chairs are now showing at the NGV in The Pool.

Originally commissioned for the Australian pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016, the chairs are handmade from strips of spray-painted black, ochre and blue steel by a team of seven Indigenous craftspeople from the Centre for Appropriate Technology. Anerle-aneme means 'sit a little while' in the Arrernte language of central Australia.
