Winner: Emerging design studio of the year 2021. Studio Raw Material is a collaboration between Royal College of Art graduates Dushyant Bansal and Priyanka Sharma.
Founded in 2016, the studio is based in the desert plains of western India, an area rich in minerals and materials such as salt, marble and clay. Much of the studio's work utilises marble offcuts partnered with techniques centred around balance and gravity to produce pieces devoid of adhesives.
Judges comments: "We want to award Studio Raw Material due to their sophisticated response to a vastly different geographical and cultural context."
