Adjaye partnered with progressive Czech glassmaking and design company LASVIT, who used a complex glass casting process to produce a completely unique set of statues.The trophies are cast in solid glass, finished with a translucent, frosty effect.
On the design, David said: “ My take on the BRIT trophy is the manifestation of a great material forged in fire and shaped into the body of a woman. She is unique, and proportionally she is very different. For me, designing the award was an opportunity to question and explore – what is the nature of perfection and imperfection, what is the notion of beauty… it was exciting to transfer those ideas to a smaller object. Now, we have something that I really, really love; I’m very happy .”
