  • Sleep on Nature by Coo-Mat

    Felix lamps Carton Lozal Coco-Mat

    In COCO-MAT Barcelona now it is for sale a cardboard spherical lamps (Similar to that shown in the gallery) designed forFelix Lozal.

    These lamps are certainly impressive and unique. To learn more about the design of these lamps we interviewed Felix Lozal who explains that it is necessary to regain and preserve the craft and learn to harness furniture and materials instead of throwing them away.

    Felix Lozal is a professional with over 15 years experience in thefurniture restoration, Where part to bring their creations. In Barcelona, ​​and other cities, many furniture are thrown; which prompts him to recycle and then to transform and applying reuse furniture restoration techniques, Giving them added value. Since this is not a simple restoration, but a bang.

    And Felix had experienced building the frame of a mirror with cardboard when he received a lamp with tears to restore. One day takes the roll of cardboard and comes up to try if he could play that lamp classic style with cardboard since it seemed interesting textures and shapes that could acquire.

    Using the cardboard and use, Felix wants to transmit messagesprotect the environment, seek sustainable, recycled and recyclable products. The furniture is the profit before throwing have another exit that can totally change. The cardboard design is an element to pack and then pull, but has the added possibilities such as applying technical or aesthetic to be processed.

    The pieces are shocking, but lamps are not. Felix Lozal makes objects that emulate a lamp, but It is actually a sculpture. In the fields is the same. It is a format where he has cared more light, to serve as a setting, but with the lights off serves as sculpture.

    These lights and spheres to be a craft are unique piecesWhere time to make each piece varies depending, among other things, of its size. To build them, Felix Lozal purchase cardboard, cut it into pieces to measure, paint the cardboard and let it dry, then cut it into strips, strips works in different sizes and protects it from behind to harden the cardboard. Once hardened assembled to form and at the same time make the case. The only time where the board is not involved in the electrification, which uses LEDs.

    Felix Lozal has other ideas of objects and sculptures to make, but tells us he lacks the time to implement them. One of these is to devote time to combine two techniques: furniture and cardboard. Has already made leather furniture and upholstered furniture where remnants of skin.

    The lamps can be seen in the catalog of Felix Lozal have a classic style, this was done to make sense of the catalog, but not all fall within this style, such as spheres. If you are interested to open the field more, but as he confessed, it takes time.

    Now working on another version in which takes the spherical form but more lighting inside.

    Felix, stresses that are pieces that must be understood as sculptures and furniture not be used. He could build a console for a space, you just have to take care of, but not a table to sit and eat. A mirror or a lamp (ceiling) by their nature and use itself may be functional in a space, and which do not touch regularly. These objects and sculptures give more play to window dressing, scenery and individuals.

    The paperboard that makes this work is recycled and recyclable, but bought. Because Felix could collect them on the street, but could not safeguard the health of these. To this should mount an infrastructure to clean it up before work it, you have the possibility to inquire more about it promises.These cartons are knowingly purchased it from waste papers, continuing the recovery chain.

    With his work Felix Lozal want to convey a message of sustainability and use.

    "Something has to be made of precious metals to be beautiful, there are also things with materials that do not give a penny for them can get a good result" Felix Lozal.

    He is of the opinion that start again appreciate craftsmanship and preserve the craft and craftsmanship.

    Violise Lunn. Flying Sculptures

    Graduada en Moda y Diseño Industrial por la Danish School of Design, compagina sus colecciones de novia con su trabajo experimental con papel. Los coleccionistas privados se rifan su trabajo. Su fascinación por este material comenzó en 1999, cuando la invitaron a participar en una exposición en Marienlyst, Dinamarca. En la muestra, que se presentó en un castillo del siglo XVI, tuvo que dar su visión en papel del vestuario de la reina viuda Juliane Marie, mientras otros artistas se ocupaban del dormitorio, el comedor, la sala de música… «No he parado de experimentar desde entonces. El papel me da libertad total para crear. Planteo las piezas como obras de arte». La piel o la cerámica son otros materiales con los que ha trabajado. «Me divierte la moda, pero me siento cómoda con la artesanía y busco la perfección a través de la materia». Su inspiración llega de la delicadeza de la porcelana y la ligereza del papel. Su último proyecto es una serie de cuencos y vasos para Royal Copenhagen.

    Katsuyo Kamo. Beyond an ornament

    Dos décadas como creador de tocados sobrecogedores han hecho del trabajo de este estilista japonés el compañero inseparable de las colecciones de Lagerfeld y Kawakubo. En el desfile de alta costura de Chanel primavera-verano 2009 algo llamó poderosamente la atención más allá de la huella del káiser: los tocados en papel de las modelos. Construcciones expresivas de una contundente sutileza, tiaras y altísimas torres de mil flores blancas, incluida la camelia. El estilista y sombrerero Katsuyo Kamo, su autor, ponía en pie a la primera fila. Colaborador habitual de Jun Takahashi, Martin Margiela y Junya Watanabe, Katsuyo cuenta que aspiraba a ser diseñador de moda cuando «un amigo me mostró las posibilidades de crear en peluquería y maquillaje». Ahora trabaja con elementos y formas con una calidad artística extraordinaria. La seda, las plumas, el látex, los espejos o el papel los entremezcla sin límites. Desde su casa-taller de Tokio, crea con la meticulosidad del artesano, rodeado de sus colecciones de insectos, cerámicas o telas.

    Ana Hagopian. Exquisite povera

    Licenciada en Bellas Artes y Diseño de Interiores, sus joyas de papel, fruto del azar y la intuición, son deseadas por medio mundo. Ahora trabaja en su próxima exposición en Hagen, Alemania, y en el Sotheby’s Institute of Art. En su estudio se acumulan peticiones de proyectos que requieren un tiempo que ahora no tiene. «La producción me tiene demasiado ocupada», asegura. Desde que llegó a España en 1982, procedente de Buenos Aires, su obra no ha dejado de enriquecerse debido a ese «antimétodo infalible», como ella denomina a su proceloso trabajo. En su obra hay una clara inspiración en las texturas y formas orgánicas de la naturaleza y una raíz profunda en la filosofía del arte povera –que valora pensamiento e individuo–. Desde que lo descubrió, su fascinación por el papel se ha acrecentado día a día. Indonesia fue su primer contacto con el color, que domina «a ojo, con un punto totalmente espontáneo». El trabajo manual, otra de sus obsesiones, la devuelve a sus orígenes, a esa infancia en el campo, rodeada de ramas y semillas que juntaba y pegaba. Se reconoce admiradora de Miyake y Comme des Garçons, y la moda es su medio natural.

    Wanda. Dreams of cut and paste

    La afición por el origami fue el principio de la amistad entre Inti y Daniel. Tras un primer encargo de arquitectura efímera en papel, llegó otro… Hoy, junto a Iris, realizan objetos, espacios y sensaciones con ese elemento único. Arquitecto, diseñador y artista plástica, Daniel Mancini, Inti Velez e Iris Joval forman este estudio creativo en torno al papel. «Su nobleza, su pureza y su elegancia nos seduce», reconocen. La experimentación es el cien por cien de su trabajo. «Enfrentarlo a enemigos naturales como el agua o el fuego es siempre un gran reto. Es ahí donde nos rompemos la cabeza». Especialistas en montajes espaciales, su relación con la moda ha tenido, hasta ahora, un papel complementario, pero su amistad con la modelo Laura Ponte los animó a crear un vestido para ella. «El proyecto nació de una escenografía para la que ideamos un árbol. Albergaba a un extraño pájaro de cola tan larga que envolvía a Laura y la dotaba de un vestido de características extraordinarias».
