Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Podium by James Lee & Leo Obstbaum

As the 2010 Vancouver Olympics commence it won’t be long before ceremonies begin to award the most outstanding athletes in the world. For the 21st Winter Olympics awards will be givien to victorious athletes standing on podiums designed by industrial designer and Coroflot member James Lee in collaboration with the late design director of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics Leo Obstbaum.

The Victory Ceremony Podiums were inspired by the peaks of the British Columbia

Rocky Mountain range and constructed from Western red cedar and Douglas fir.

Wood donated by communities, businesses, individuals and First Nations from across British Columbia was used to construct 23 individual and team podiums that will be used for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Also designed by Lee and Obstbaum are the wooden trays that will be used to present the medals. The trays have a non-slip surface in order to keep the medals in place.
