SolidWorks helps with Rio Olympic Torch Design

Rio 2016 Olympic Torch - colourful expanding design for the games

With Rio 2016 just around the corner, the new Olympic Torch has been unveiled - with moving coloured segments!

It seems like only yesterday we made a fanfare of London 2012’s BarberOsgerby crafted Olympic Torch, but it’s shocking to realise that Rio’s turn to host the event is quickly upon us - and its torch is ready to light up.

Designed by Sao Paolo-based design studio Chelles & Hayashi, the torch features an expanding, segmented body that reveals the colours of the host nation’s sky, mountains, sea and earth when passed between torchbearers.

The multi-disciplinary studio, headed up by Gustavo Chelles and Romy Hayshi, has a huge mixed portfolio of product and packaging designs, and seem to create at least part of their 3D output in SolidWorks.
