VINYL STATUETTE  [2012]  This is a trophy made for a Dj Competition in Stockholm 2012. The idea was to create something that was related to the competition's direction, but not in an obvious way.   The original idea was to make the silhouette shape of a stereotypical trophy, creating the volume with layers and layers of vinyls. But having 500 old vinyl records to experiment freely with gave us some room for playfulness, and the shape changed many times during the process.   Our vision was to achieve a trophy that felt dynamic, light and elegant.   Vinyl records are made out of the material PVC. The idea of making something new out of something old was central for us, but the choice of material could be questioned since the plastic leach out toxic gases when being heated, and we had to be cautious when grinding and melting the records together.
