 The statue for the BRIT Awards 2019 has been unveiled, designed by renowned architect Sir David Adjaye.

The new trophy, which is cast in solid glass, was created after Sir David teamed up with Czech glassmaking and design company LASVIT. Sir David describes the trophy as “the manifestation of a great material forged in fire and shaped into the body of a woman”. He explained: “The Brit Awards are a quintessential part of a celebration of British talent and a powerful forum to really talk about the evolving nature of British culture and the contribution of people to that culture.”

“She is unique, and proportionally she is very different.” Outlining his thinking behind the design, Sir David said it 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,” he said. “Now, we have something that I really, really love; I’m very happy with it.” The latest statue comes after the 2018 offering was designed by Turner Prize winning sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor – who is responsible for iconic creations such as The Orbit in East London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
