Sleek new design for FIVB Women’s World Championship trophy

 

Parma, Italy, March 10, 2014 – With the world watching, the official trophy of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship Italy 2014 trophy was unveiled during the Drawing of Lots ceremony at the Farnese Theatre in Parma on Monday.

The trophy's unique contemporary design has set itself apart from other awards in international sporting competitions.

With brass as its basic material, the women’s trophy weighs close to ten kilos. The trophy changes colour gradually from its base to its crown, moving from nickel to rose gold, exemplifying the winning team growing in confidence as they work through the stages of the Championship. The gold plated crown represents the team’s final achievement of a World Championship title.

Bringing together the best

The coming together of an open minded sports federation, two contemporary product designers and skilled production specialists have made it possible to create something truly extraordinary for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship Italy 2014.

The conceptual design for the trophy was provided by Marco Heer of Achtung!, a creative agency known internationally for their work in brand development. Having worked closely with the FIVB for a number of years, the company was responsible for designing the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship Italy 2014 logo on which the design of the trophy was based.

The FIVB then mandated two young product designers from Switzerland, Thilo Alex Brunner and Jörg Mettler to create the new World Championship trophy.

With its unique contemporary design, the trophy has set itself apart from other awards in international sporting competitions.

Eichenberger LTD and their mastermind, Juan Franco, were responsible for its production. The company specialises in complex metal works for the Swiss watchmaking and jewellery industry.

The trophy was unveiled prior to the Drawing of Lots for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship Italy 2014, which determined the makeup of the pools in the first round of their year’s tournament.
