Presentation of the 2019 prize sculptures and artists
The prize sculptures for the two competition categories of the Technology Fast 50 Award were created in cooperation between Deloitte and artists from the Academy of Fine Arts.
All of the prize sculptures are one-off pieces made exclusively for the prize winners by the artists. Artists submit their ideas as part of a call for entries. A jury, consisting of representatives of the Academy and Deloitte, selects the winning sculptures.
Technology Fast 50
This minimalist sculpture is based on the human drive for perfection. The Golden Ratio is perfection in a proportional sense, optically accessible and shaped visually over centuries. This defined proportion forms the basis of the sculpture and refers to outstanding performance, creativity and consistently visionary action within the company.

The idea for the design of the prize sculpture came from relay races in athletics. In a relay race, several runners compete together and pass a baton from one runner to another. Each individual takes on one part of the total distance. They form a team and combine their strength to fight for a common victory. One runner cannot win on their own, it only works with combined power and outstanding performance from each runner. If outstanding achievements are attained in business, these were made possible by a perfectly coordinated team travelling the path together, just like a relay race. Together, they make a vision reality. The award is divided into six streams, which symbolize the individual areas for which the company receives the award: Innovation, progress, technology, dynamics, outstanding performance and visionary action.
