x-prize foundation perpetual trophy - custom award

Every year the X-Prize competition brings together corporate leaders, philanthropists, heads of innovation and XPRIZE Trustees that gather for a multi-day Visioneering workshop to brainstorm, debate and prioritize which of the world's Grand Challenges might be solved.

For this project we wanted to create a custom trophy as innovative as the X-Prize competition. An artful design that would be complex but showcase artistic and engineering ingenuity complimenting the purpose of the competition. The final trophy design is sculptural, artistic and architectural all at once, and absolutely stunning to look at.

The custom trophy stands over 2 feet tall and was made with 9 layers in total; acrylic in the core, carbon fibre on the top and bottom, and surrounded by an anodized aluminum frame.
