Formula 1 Trophy - 2013
Client : Formula 1
TLV was commissioned to fabricate the winners' trophies designed by Michael Foley for the Formula One Airtel Indian Grand Prix (2013).
The design of the trophy is an aesthetic interpretation of a contemporary and forward looking India on a global pedestal. The concept driving the trophy stems from a unique expression of the sport using a fusion of exquisite craftsmanship and high precision engineering. The trophy is created using 24 metal slivers assembled around the axis of the trophy, inspired by the 24 spokes in the ‘Chakra’ of the Indian flag. It has been crafted using aircraft grade, lightweight aluminium. The colours saffron, white and green are embedded in the gaps between the slivers depicting a subtle expression of the Indian tri colour. The final avatar of the cup uses resilient finishes of aluminium to create a unique blend of metallic black, red and silver.
