London 2012 Olympic Torch Design by Barber Osgerby

LOCOG – The well known London Organizing Committee of Olympic and Paralympic Games has displayed archetypes of the world-fame London 2012 Olympic Torch, which will be carried by 8,000 torchbearers. The torch has been designed in a special way in a triangular form with a burner system inside, assuring the heat is dissipated quickly without affected the torchbearer. The circles running along the body of the torch offers an outstanding level of transparency. The torch’s triangular form has been perforated by 8,000 circles that represent the 8,000 Torchbearers plus their stories of personal growth and/or input to their local community that will be commemorated during the Olympic Torch Relay in London.
