Dahan Prize

The Dhahan Prize for Punjabi Literature celebrates the rich culture and transnational heritage of Punjabi literature and language. Hopewell Works fabricated this world-class trophy for world-class literature, using a combination of laser engraved walnut and etched metals.

Standing Ovation
To ensure that this tall trophy would be topple-proof (and to give it the heft befitting such an award), we inserted extra metal weight into the base, invisibly covered by matching walnut plugs.

Non-traditional construction

The design brief called for an perfect equilateral triangle, which is a challenging ask for woodwork. Each trophy is constructed from three precisely milled pieces, glued together in a custom jig.
