Four students who designed two slender telecoms masts will see them built after winning a competition. Peter Tran and Stefano di Santo, studying interior design at London's Guildhall University designed a slim- line monopole (right), while Guy Seivewright and Jerome Booton, studying furniture design at Birmingham's University of Central England, came up with a tripod-style mast that can straddle a road or river. The awards were run by the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Science, with Cellnet, which wants to minimise the impact of its services on the environment. Each team also won £5000.
