  • The cardboard is considered an ephemeral material, which makes it a good metaphor for our times. This idea was the one who encouraged me to use as raw material for parts that give rise to this catalog. This is not the end of work, quite the opposite.

    These parts should be understood as proposals starting points from which to continue creating, adapting, inventing, exploring the possibilities of a material, cardboard, which is treated as a noble material in the reinterpretation of classical forms.

    The component parts of the catalog are made by hand, can be marketed in limited extent, -a series and special formats, and vary in shape, size and color.

  • Thus ended 2012

    Already ordered the workshop, when I enter nothing refers to the Christmas installation at the Centers Factory Madrid, but I still find some other brightly colored corrugated cardboard or some cans for recycling paint dry. The next task is to sort the images that were generated during the process, with this digital camera are hundreds and the truth is that few persons are saved them. I tried to separate stages and with these photos hope to convey the feeling I felt the first day of work when unpacking the parts.

    Open boxes, Show Pieces and Fit!

  • Symbols, Signs: Logistics Lozal

    In the previous post "Cardboard Cardboard leads BCN → MDRD"Project talked Felix Lozal Christmas decorations already riding in three malls in Madrid, I can anticipate that is the chain of malls Factory and all the packages that you saw so well placed in the truck are distributed and stored in Factory Getafe, Factory Las Rozas and Factory San Sebastián de los reyes. The material used to pack as we saw is the corrugated cardboard and met, could not be otherwise, with the "Rule of the three Rs". In this post we unveiled the strategy of identifying vultos for distribution in the different malls.

    ColorHad to be colored to identify the volumes transported and it relate to each of the commercial galleries, Felix chose Pink SS de los Reyes, Orange Getafe and white Las Rozas, a fully visual and plastic signage, "Brochazos color" Getting to differentiate spaces which are intended to be stored until the day assembling the parts of the project. The content of each of the packages is described in "Text" your handwriting although the size of the words, would be more correct to say his "wrist and letter". The result was very effective, at a glance the corresponding boxes were unloaded, without performing tests on paper or dossiers, it was not necessary to recount packages, and reread texts; cave to say that either had to resort to readers barcode the QR codes.

    To show a good breasted button colorful. By the way if madness imagining how will the pieces are riding on Factory Madrid, think not "a white christmas" ...

  • Cardboard Cardboard leads BCN → MDRD

    This Saturday Felix undertook Lozal trip to Madrid. After several months of work was time for truth.

    It all started back in June when he received the commission decorating a commercial galleries in Madrid, to which they liked the idea of ​​using corrugated cardboard as decoration material, provided that comply with the necessary security measures.

    The project It was really interesting, the space work was a challenge, It was not decorate a window or a shop, was to create the Christmas atmosphere in three galleries Business at three different points of Madrid: Getafe, San Sebastián and Las Rozas. The project would wear a total of twenty structures already created by the company of which only I can overtake you which are; fourteen 5m tall, one of 4m high, nine 3m high and of 2m high.

    The creative and visual part was completely in their hands, they hoped that the sketches that Felix would submit to his liking and satisfying, it was.

    Felix continued development sketches, creating prototypes and began to build the pieces that would dress the structure, I have to confess that be surprising, but since I can not anticipate anything about them in this post, I am going to reveal the secret that almost killed me with curiosity How can solve the transfer of parts to Madrid to not suffer any damage?

    ¡ECardboard Cardboard l lead to!Never until Saturday had seen such large packs and yet so light, it was packaging completely sustainable and recyclableIt was amazing how quickly they loaded the truck Rolando and Ernesto, I even let the audacity to take one of the boxes, by the way space was calculated to the millimeter, all the pieces fell into place like a charm.

    Share nonstop to keep dreaming

    Some of you already know the changes and developments Felix Lozal is doing. It seems that everything has come suddenly and as one who does not like things, but each of the proposals are the result of months of work, reflection, study, research and analysis, not only in finding objects and forms of expression, also external situations that occur and can make us doubt.

    In this path as a good friend, has entrusted to his friends and they have been entrusted to him. Naturally different energies have become entangled in such a way that the flow forward, pushes us to continue to each his dream, which can awaken to continue living in the dream of another, where you never know who will happen and that you would not wake up, almost, nearly synergy perfect.

    This is the motto of Felix "Dreaming is free. Make a project actually costs more, is possible " while it prepared to accompany him and we have taken some more. This phrase is not the product of a moment of inspiration by the arrival of a muse, is the most authoritative expression of defining its position to the world that, like it or so, he lives and which is willing to be happy to be, Whatever it takes, because the know about all things ... It's Possible! and be able to share and collaborate while so you do not end our dreams ... that are possible.

    Hopefully, henceforth, to convey my words the feelings that cause me Felix projects which are themselves not sure terminaréis fans still remain, like me and you to feel reflected in the posts.
