HARVEY FLOWER PRIZE TROPHY
New titanium trophy design for the Harvey Flower Prize granted by Titanium Information Group. The prize was awarded in London in June 2012.
Dimensions / XYZ
120 x 156 x 150 mm
Electron Beam Melting (EBM)
Manufacturing partner: Mercury Centre / Poligrat.
The Titanium information Group (TIG) was looking for a new design to celebrate the properties of titanium and highlight the capabilities of advanced manufacturing.
“The Harvey Flower Prize is awarded annually to individuals in recognition of outstanding contribution to the development of titanum. The prize is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Harvey Flower from Imperial College London whose outstanding contribution to the science and technology of titanium led to a clearer and fuller understanding of the metal and its alloy.”
The proposal inspired by nature shows the beatiful forms of a shell, due to its harmonic proportion and system of internal growth with is diversity of points of view. The shell grows from a flat base in a visual stability game.
The proposal was designed for the process chosen for the production of the trophy, that it’s Arcam electron beam melting (EBM) with titanium powder (Ti6Al4V) and it was made at the Mercury Centre and coloured using anodising by Poligrat, to give it a striking blue and gold finish displaying the attractive chromatic properties of titanium.
