Hatching from the egg, the birth and awakening of a chicken ready to face the real hard life after a formation and maturation process . A similar process as a student designer, for this reason the Award Ei! has born.
While Hansel Schloupt and Oriol Castellar were in their last year, they proposed to their university to create a student design award. In order to promote the work of their students and to recognize their effort and help them to enter in a new phase of life: the workplace.
The trophy, representing the excellence and complexity of design with its geometry, is made of ceramic from a rapid prototyping model, expressing a fragile sensation and prestige to the student. The winner opens the trophy discovering the inside finished of bathed gold 18 karat contrasting with the painted
iron cover running with magnets.
A perfect match between conceptual and functional design, excellency and simplicity, communication and sensations, digital and craft process.
With the support of
