One More Award

What: This trophy-shaped sauce dispenser can be used to award everything, offering the appropriate words and symbols of praise, and a golden finishing touch.

Why: Tristan Roques challenges the value of the countless design prizes that are out there. Awards are like topping sauces, he says: they don’t improve what’s being awarded, but just make it look and taste better. So why not make this sauce available for everyone?

How: Instead of having to enter an expensive competition, you can win one for free with ‘One More Award’. It presents the most frequently used adjectives and nouns from jury statements on brass plates; screw the preferred combination onto any object, finish it off with a splash of golden sauce, and let the ceremony begin.
