Rio 2016 Paralympic Games torch

The decision to start from a single creation concept reflects the 2 objects’ sense of equality and equivalence of importance. When closed, therefore, the 2 torches look the same. When open, the Olympic and Paralympic souls reveal themselves, in all their exclusive details. In the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games torch, sinuous and continuous reliefs simulate the high and low points in the life of a rio Paralympic athlete, based on determination and achievements. Its quadrangular texture refers to the 4 Paralympic values – courage, determination, inspiration and equality – which are also written in Braille on the objectives. 

Rio 2016 Paralympic Games torch

When we light the flame of the Rio Paralympic Games, we will illuminate inspiring examples, celebrating creativity, multiformity and will be a time to awaken our consciousness regarding a truth that not everyone realises: our differences do not build us different. The flame is carried using torches, in a relay taking the Paralympic message beyond the host city and cessation with the lighting of the cauldron at the Games opening ceremony. As one of the Rio 2016 Torch’s main innovative attributes, its volumes open in an upward motion, like a body that stretches its boundaries, direct by the values of the Paralympic Movement: courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
