We custom designed and handcrafted these unique custom pyramid trophies / awards specifically for The Gathering Awards ceremony. We designed the awards to be a modern interpretation of the classic pyramid shape. Typically pyramid trophies / awards are fairly plain and conservative but, we wanted these trophies / awards to be unique, modern and special.
The custom pyramid shape of the trophy / award was folded out of one piece of 2mm aluminium and finished with matte anodising. We then mixed up a custom silver metallic ink and silk screened the text and logos onto the pyramid sections.
The base was made of a heavy 6.35mm aluminium and anodised in a vibrant red colour. When looking into the pyramid trophy / award from above you can see the year cut from the pyramid to reveal the red base below. A hidden detail. The base was then finished with a laser engraved plaque with the event and organisers details.
The end result is a truly unique, modern and conceptual pyramid trophy / award that can be appreciated for many years to come.
