The DNA Paris Design Awards Trophy was designed by the Studio Briand Berthereau in Paris with the idea of creating a real piece of art with simple and strong lines.
An object more than a trophy.
The industrial company Hydro was partnering with us to manufacture and create the trophy.
The whole piece was made in France from one block of low carbon aluminium – Hydro Reduxa and shaped by extrusion.
And the result is here, within arm’s reach of our Grand Prix winners !
The design Studio Briand Berthereau
Based in Paris and Brittany, this leading studio was created in 2011 by Joran Briand and Arnaud Berthereau. Its philosophy is very simple: make the most possible out of the least possible. This approach, which could be called “frugal”, seeks to create the perfect balance between form and function, whilst simultaneously optimizing responses to financial and environmental constraints inherent to every project.
