Observer Award Habbits
For the 2009 Observer Ethical Awards, Giraffe wanted to provide trophies that were unique to each category winner. The shape of the 'Habbit' - the size of the feet, the nose etc., is determined by the CO2 footprint profile of the winner.
Having worked on the project previously - assessing different production routes and costs, and developing an automated process for generating the 3d data for the Habbits, we knew that nylon SLS (stereo laser sintering) parts were the best solution and were well placed to liaise with the production sponsor 3t to get the trophies made in time.
