The 105th Tour de France is over and winners lifted the design trophies over their heads. LASVIT was for the seventh time the proud producer of the crystal trophy, which since 2011, has been designed by Peter Olah, a designer from Škoda Auto, which is a long-time official partner of the race.
The unique glass trophy has an iconic, streamlined form, and its shape for each year has always differed in its cut – each one is specifically designed for the given race. This year’ s paid a tribute to the cubism and was inspired by freedom and speed. “It is a very demanding decor. The cutter must take away a large amount of glass in precisely determined cuts. Much like expanding wings, the decor on the trophy broadens towards the top,” describes Peter Olah.
The trophy which each of the four winning riders will receive is made from one piece of hand-blown and hand-cut crystal glass, each of them weighing almost four kilograms and standing over sixty centimeters tall.
