Best of Globe Trophy by Kelly Limerick
Designed by Singapore-based crochet artist Kelly Limerick, the Best of Globe trophy is a simple interpretation of the new Shaw Contract Design Awards logo in 3D. The lines along the corner are extruded into another plane, turning it into a cube-like structure containing ‘space’. The ‘walls’ are crocheted in a tessellated pattern inspired by Shaw Contract carpets' face constructions, and made of Eco Solution Q yarn. They create a medley of soft and hard materials with the wood, which are up-cycled from birch ply offcuts. Notches are cut in the wood by hand, and then steam-bent for a curved finish; holes are then drilled along the edge for the yarn to be stitched and crocheted into. The finished trophy is not elaborate, yet puts a focus on both the craft in the details and sustainability qualities.
