Tokyo 2020 Torch

Recommended Posts

I don’t mind it at all. More of a “classic” torch look than most these days.

And considering this would be Japan's 4th Olympic torch design opportunity, they botched it again.   Olympic design has regressed a few steps back.

If you think about it the torch does look better with the flame lit imo..

Personally, I like the design. I think the miniatures make cute keychains.

For me the design of the torch is perfect and coherent with the simplicity of the brand so far. People who say "we expected more from Japan" obviously don't know how japan design really is. They have always had preferrence on simplicity and minimalism. Sometimes, less is better. And the torch does look better when lit.

Torchbearer uniforms are alright. They do remind me a tiny bit of the Peruvian football team and Rayo Vallecano kits, though. :lol: At least they finally gave a break to the last two uniforms which looked too much like jumpsuits to my taste.

/\/\  Funny, that they skipped the "logo" design entirely on the uniforms.

And will this also be the Paralympic torch -- or will have it have one petal less?  :blink:

Where?  I don't see the whole navy blue "wreath" thingie.  It's just a few of the "confetti" and in red -- so that CAN'T be the Official Logo.
