The Trends Trophy Design Our 3D printed topography Trophy Design for the Trends Magazine
We were commissioned by the Home and Design Trends magazine to create a Trophy design for their first ever Design award ceremony. We started looking at the way forms and crystals emerge in Nature, and articulating a process around this.
We created a grid-form for an emerging landscape of primordial forms, loosely derived from a pyramidal geometry. Initial tapestry like graphic surfaces were developed, to study agglomeration and rarefaction, to create pinched up areas of interest within a landscape.
The next step involved pulling a few forms into 3D, in a virtual environment. The idea was to conceptually create a sea of bubbling pyramids, from which the Trophy would organically emerge.
The finalised rendition of the Trophy, with the topography and a few formed objects, Architecture and design placeholders, that appear to be forming from the background primordial soup. We favoured a solid wood base to interestingly contrast between the new and the old.
From our design, a print was created, to prototype and test the design, and make sure all surfaces were articulated well, and were produced as per the design. At this stage, minor modifications were made, to increase support to a few fragile portions of the trophy.
Details of the Trophy landscape show the intricacy in design details and form explorations, to create an interesting landscape for pride of placement on the desks of the awarded architectural firms.
