The Dubai Tour Trophy has been designed by Pininfarina.
Circle of Stars has a strong and distinctive character combining the purity and essentia lity of lines with the richness and refinement of materials. The Trophy comes alive from a circle, the simplest and the most perfect form, under the pressure of the movement, resulting in a dynamic and elegant shape. Several are the references to the world of cycling: the Trophy can in fact be seen as a wheel of a racing bike, representing the tension of the competition and, at the same time, it was studied to be worn by the winner as homage to the cyclists of the past who used to bring the tube over the shoulder.
The materials used have both an aesthetic and a symbolic role referring to the Dubai reality; the object takes shape from the extraordinary multi-faceted blue sand crystals, typical of the local desert, to be turned in a perfect and regular form thanks to the action of speed.
