Passing the Torch: An Evolution of Form

Olympic Torch - Enough of the bad press with regards to China hosting the 2008 Olympics. Its a celebration of sports and not a bad brew of politics. The Olympic Games have achieved a lot in terms of designs and one of them is the Olympic Torch. New York Times have presented an interactive look at the evolution of the torch since 1936, a representation of national symbolism and tradition. I still remember when I was a kid, I would always draw raw sketches of torches on pieces of paper because its always an unique object to draw. Interestingly Starck actually designed the torch for the Winter Games 1992. Click here for more info. Pic via here.
