the winners of the 2019 BRIT awards — UK’s annual pop music prize ceremony — will be honored with a timeless and unique trophy that saw sir david adjaye as the design project leader together with jason iley, BRITs chairman and CEO and chairman of sony music UK & ireland, and alice beal, sony music UK.

 

‘my take on the BRIT trophy is the manifestation of a great material forged in fire and shaped into the body of a woman. she is unique, and proportionally she is very different. for me, designing the award was an opportunity to question and explore – what is the nature of perfection and imperfection, what is the notion of beauty… it was exciting to transfer those ideas to a smaller object. now, we have something that I really, really love; I’m very happy with it,’ commented sir david adjaye on the design.

iley, who has personally commissioned the recent trio of world-renowned award designers — adjaye, kapoor and hadid — said, ‘david’s treatment has surpassed my expectations, continuing the transformation of the award, as well as building on the legacy of outstanding creativity over the past few years. BRIT winners on the night will take home a truly stunning piece of work that’s totally unique to them with each award carrying its own individual and distinctive imperfections. I’d like to thank david and his team, in particular duncan wilson, LASVIT and alice beal for all of their work in making david’s vision a reality.’
