After a year of hard work we're very glad to show you the medals, gadgets and podiums we designed and manufactured for 2013 Swimming World Championships, taking place in Barcelona from July 19th. Wanting to do something unconventional but deeply rooted into the swimming world, we borrowed the idea of a silicon strap from the swim goggles. This opened to lagranja a full range of possibilities. Silicon's technological properties enabled us to hold the medal in a completely different way, embracing it instead of hanging it. This, of course, lead us to new forms. When asked to design a commemorative medal, we followed the same principles we used for the winner one, just substituting the thick golden, silver or bronze coin for a light metal ring. [ES] Tras un año de arduo trabajo estamos encantados de enseñaros las medallas, gadgets y pódiums que hemos diseñado y producido para los Campeonatos del Mundo de Natación de 2013, que se celebran en Barcelona a partir del 19 de julio. Queríamos hacer algo poco convencional pero relacionado con el mundo de la natación, así que tomamos prestada la idea de la cinta de silicona de las gafas de los nadadores. Esto nos abrió una amplia gama de posibilidades. Las propiedades técnicas de la silicona nos permiten sujetar la medalla de una manera completamente diferente, abrazándola en vez de colgándola, y esto, a su vez, nos lleva a descubrir nuevas formas. Cuando nos plantearon diseñar una medalla conmemorativa, seguimos los mismos principios usados para la medalla deportiva, pero sustituyendo el pesado disco de oro, plata o bronce por un ligero anillo metálico.
