Thermic, 2014 World gliding Championship award design
The challenge in award designing is great – it is not enough that a product encompasses the message of beauty – it also has to meet the aesthetic, functional and economical objectives and to fulfill the message that it is carrying. I strived to this design task in great passion. I aimed to create a lucid object which encompasses the spirit of sky, flying and gliding.
Inspiration for the award design came from the thermal column and clouds. I aimed at capturing the feeling of gliding by using the Scandinavian design language. Glass is an exquisite material to express the immaterial phenomenon that a glider experience in the air. The lucid transparent shape with unadorned appearance creates visually changing atmosphere where dreams can fly.
