“Quartz” trophy by Jean Mauboulès

Trophy

 

For the Swiss Film Award, artist and sculptor Jean Mauboulès has designed a “Quartz” trophy which exudes understated elegance, clarity and precision.

Designed by Jean Mauboulès, the sculpture combines subtle sophistication with sharp geometric lines. The trophy is a collection of pale-green industrial glass panels of varying heights that together form a single smooth-flowing line. The rough-hewn edges and adhesive dot create a spectacular play of light and striking 3D effect.

Jean Mauboulès (born 1943 in Poey de Lescar, France) is an internationally renowned artist who has lived and worked in Solothurn since the 1960s. Originally a painter, he gradually began to shift the focus of his creative talents to sculpture. Working primarily in glass, iron and steel, Mauboulès is especially interested in the technical and visual challenges of sculpture, such as weight and movement, stability and instability, light and shade.
