The London 2012 Olympic Torch : The Torch is the first focus, the first illumination of the Olympic Games that will get worldwide coverage. Designers proudly compete to get the once in a lifetime gig of creating this emblem. This Olympic London 2012, it’s in the capable hands of duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby of Barber Osgerby - a furniture design firm based in Shoreditch, London.
It made from a golden aluminium alloy, the triangular torch will be perforated by 8000 circular holes representing the 8000 torch-bearers to take part in the Olympic relay and allowing glimpses of the burner system inside. It will comprise an inner and outer skin, joined by two cast elements at each end. It will be 800 mm high and weigh 800 g.
The triangular form of the Torch design has been inspired by the identification of multiples of three that are found across the vision and delivery of the Olympic Games :
1. The three Olympic values of respect, excellence and friendship
2. The three words that make the Olympic motto – faster, higher, stronger
3. The fact the UK has hosted the Olympic Games three times – in 1908, 1948 and 2012
4. The vision for the London 2012 Olympic Games to combine three strands of work – sport, education and culture
“We felt it should be something that’s really beautiful and simple,” says Jay Osgerby of their design. “But it had to feel like a functional object, a piece of sporting equipment like a baton.” There will be 8,000 of these torches made for each of the bearers who pass the flame across to the next runner, so the cost had to be representative of quality but not too fancy - the design has to be functional and so lightweight enough to carry over distance.
This led to their design including perforated holes to keep weight down but keeping structural integrity intact. The flame will be fuelled by a propane-butane gas canister dropped into the centre, the flames licking through the holes as it becomes part of the torch itself.

Seven years after London was selected to host the 2012 Summer Olympics, the Olympic Flame is on its way to England. Earlier today in Greece, performers dressed as priests and priestesses gathered for a ceremony in Olympia, the ancient birthplace of the Olympic games, where they appealed to the sun god Apollo to light the flame with the help of a parabolic mirror. The Olympic flame was then passed to swimmer Spyros Gianniotis to begin a seven-day relay through Greece, followed by a flight to Great Britain, where it will begin a 70-day journey, changing hands 8,000 times on its way to London.

Today marks the halfway point of the 70-day Olympic Torch relay through the United Kingdom. Since arriving in Cornwall on May 18, the flame has been carried through villages and cities, across lakes and mountain ranges, on foot, by train, on horseback, and through the air, from Cornwall to the Shetland Islands. By the time it reaches London to launch the 2012 Summer Olympics in 35 days, the torch will have passed through the hands of 8,000 torchbearers.
