18/07/2013 - After a year of hard work we're very glad to show you the medals, gadgets and podiums we designed and manufactured for BCN 2013 Swimming World Championships, taking place in Barcelona from July 19th.

Barcelona 2013 Simming World Championship Medals MAKING OF from Lagranja Design on Vimeo.

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.

Have a look to the video we prepared!
