Bell Labs Shannon Visionary Award

0.01

Nokia Bell Labs, the seminal research and development company, commissioned Bennett Awards to create custom awards for a new recognition award they have established: the Bell Labs Shannon Visionary Award. These new awards honor global luminaries and visionaries for their work and contributions in advancing research in the current and future digital age. These awards were created in honor of Bell Lab’s Claude Shannon, generally regarded as the father of information theory. Shannon first pioneered the idea that information could be represented by 1’s and 0’s, and developed the first mathematical theory that explained how this digital information system could work in electrical applications.

Bennett Awards worked with Bell Labs to create a new, unique custom award design for these awards. The design features a sculpture of a standing figure holding an open globe. Inside the globe is a banner engraved with some of Shannon’s mathematical algorithms. These sculptures were cast in pewter. The figures feature a brushed pewter finish, and the globes and banners were gold plated. The sculpture awards were mounted on pewter medallions engraved with binary code, which were then mounted on black bases with engraving of the award name, recipient name, and date of presentation.
