REGINE SCHUMANN DESIGNS 2021 PRIZE CUBES
German artist Regine Schumann took on the theme Anti-corruption and created two transparent, fluorescent prize cubes for the award winners of 2021.
The winners of 2021 received stunning prize cube made by German artist Regine Schumann on October 21.
The fight against corruption permeates all parts of the global goals in Agenda 2030, and it is a fundamental component for the desired goals to become a reality. When thinking about anti-corruption, designers thought of transparency.
"Anti-corruption is about exposing what is happening behind closed doors and investigating what is hidden underneath the surface" says Anna Ahnborg, Design director at branding agency Happy F&B. This year’s prize cubes involve collaboration with German light and installation artist Regine Schumann. Schumann’s work explores transparency and the relationship between color, light, form, and room.
"The prize cubes are transparent and fluorescent, symbolically envisioning how corrupt structures uncovered" says Regine Schumann. The winner of 2021 is the Icelandic whistleblower Jóhannes Stefánsson. "Jóhannes Stefánsson selflessly reveals hidden structures and illuminates them. The structures seem to have a different effect in daylight than in the dark. His prize cube will be illuminated under blacklight, symbolically sharpening the view" she says.
During the WIN WIN Week 2021, Regine joined the celebrations in Gothenburg.
