Where form meets function

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, both based in East London, are responsible for the design of the 2012 Olympic Torch. Taken into account the 8,000 individual torchbearers and their respective communities, the design features 8,000 circles representing all the stories that make up the charge to the Olympic Games. While the base idea is quite simple, it is achieved with great grace.
