2017 Awards - Northern Design Festival

This year the theme of the festival was ‘Material Matters’ and we were delighted to be asked once again to design and manufacture the awards for the event. 

Our concept was to bring the two most contrasting materials, visually and texturally, and stick them together. It also gave us the opportunity to have a play around and experiment with silicon which was fun! Our electric pink silicon was made by first creating an acrylic positive laser cut mould, to then to cast the second negative mould from denser silicon. We then used the negative to cast the final pieced from.

The marble was laser etched for the subtle detailing on the bottom.  

The squidgy silicon made each award extremely tactile and fun to the touch, but overall they had a very contemporary and fun aesthetic.
