"LYRE" - trophy of the "Accordeus" Online Music Competition

The unique structure of the lyre-shaped trophy is built of more than 200 transparent plexiglass rods that are cut from a single plexiglass plate using the laser cutting method, according to a previously defined technical drawing. Sticks of square profile 4x4 mm, of different lengths (heights), are manually joined with a special glue, with great precision and dedication in the gluing process. Each stick was initially sterilized and then positioned inside the trophy form in accordance with the technical drawing.

The design concept of this trophy is based on the words "perform magic" and aims to enchant the audience, ie to create a unique moment of magic within the solid form of the trophy.


The author of the "LYRE" trophy is Armin Ćosić. Read more about the trophy
