Podium London 2012
in collaboration with Hong-Yeul Eom, Luc Fusaro, Yan Lu & Eegan Koo
We designed the podia for the Summer Olympics and Paralympics of the London 2012 games. For the first time, the podium was conceived for use in the Paralympics first and foremost, making it an inclusive design. About 40 of these we designed, in various sizes to accomodate the events and venues. Made from recyclable GRP and fabricated locally in London. We did this while we were getting our double masters at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College.
Our design team aimed to created a lasting image for the victory ceremonies for the games, whether watching it live in the stadium or from your home on television. The form encapsulates the dynamism and energy of the summer games. We worked with local staging and set manufacturers, Scott Fleary, to bring the podia to life and within budget.
