Sustainia is an organisation working to raise awareness about sustainable projects. On October 11th Sustainia awarded two of the best sustainable solutions among 100 international nominees, and we designed the awards! Arnold Schwarzenegger, Honorary Chair of the Sustainia Award Committee, handed over the main Sustainia award, while Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway handed over the Sustainia Community award.

The award is made of leftover window glass, and the colours are obtained by colouring the glue that holds the layers together. It looks very different depending on the light and angle: from above it is almost black because all the colours blend together, while from the sides it is translucent and colourful.
