The 2019 BRIT Awards statue, designed by British-Ghanian architect Sir David Adjaye, has been unveiled.
The 2019 statues are cast in solid glass, and see Sir David Adjaye collaborate with Czech glassmaking and design company LASVIT.
Speaking about his design, Adjaye explains, "The BRIT Awards are a quintessential part of a celebration of British talent and a powerful forum to really talk about the evolving nature of British culture and the contribution of people to that culture. 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 with it."
Expanding on the collaboration, Roman Žákovský, Managing Director of LASVIT, added, “Designing and manufacturing a unique piece is always challenging, but also an inspiring process. We developed many samples, we were fine-tuning the colour and texture of the glass and are very proud to partner with Sir David Adjaye and bring to the 2019 BRIT Award trophy a bit of Bohemian crystal beauty.”
