We're proud to announce the Bright Rays winner is Martin Tauts! Through his Newcastle design firm Red Block, Martin collaborates with local designers and suppliers to create interior objects that fuse Scandinavian technique and Japanese minimalism with Australian manufacturing and materials. The grant will let Martin experiment with new designs and keep Red Block's manufacturing local. He will also receive mentoring from Sasha and Russel from Koskela and a MINI Ray for twelve months. Congratulations to Martin and all our finalists as they embark on the next step of their careers.
