For the past few days we have been working flat out to finish the forth annual AkzoNobel Award for Health & Safety. These awards are cast as a solid piece of lead crystal, with a multitude of internal colours swirling round inside the cast, reflecting the company's involvement in the production of paint through brands such as International Paint and Dulux.
Once cast and polished a stone base was carved and bonded to the cast and the block cut into sections on a diamond saw to create three distinct awards. The concept here was to reflect the wholistic nature of the company, addressing - the product 'paint', collective identity and the all embracing importance of H & S in industry.
