Formula One, Eni Trophy
The worldwide energy company Eni asked Antonio Pio Saracino to design the Formula One and Moto GP trophy for 2010-13 using the iconic Eni logo as inspiration.
The instructions were to transform the fire-breathing dog – its body, legs, and the flame – into fluid lines, stressing the dynamic quality of the creature.
The fluid lines travel throughout the body, from the six legs to the spine and up to the head, which transforms into the flame.
The trophies are manufactured by means of selective laser sintering, and the polyamide material is then lacquered in gold, silver or bronze pigment.
