Story of the trophy
The conceptual design for the trophy was provided by Marco Heer of Achtung!, a creative agency known internationally for their work in brand development. Having worked closely with the FIVB for a number of years, the company was responsible for designing the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship Poland 2014 logo on which the design of the trophy was based.
The FIVB then mandated two young product designers from Switzerland, Thilo Alex Brunner and Jörg Mettler to create the new World Championship trophy.
With its unique contemporary design, the trophy has set itself apart from other awards in international competitions across the sporting world.
Eichenberger LTD and their mastermind, Juan Franco, have been responsible for its production. The company specialises in complex metal works mainly for the Swiss watchmaking and jewellery industry.
The coming together of an open minded sports federation, two contemporary product designers and highly skilled production specialists have made it possible to create something truly extraordinary for the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship Poland 2014.
