Hace dos años envie un diseño junto a su maqueta al concurso de diseño andreuworld, lamentablemente por problemas de correo el paquete me fue devuelto por llegar fuera de plazo. Asi que esta vez tomé un poco mas de precauciones para la postulacion. La maquete fue expuesta en el showroom de la marca en Valencia despues del salon del mueble y de la premiacion. De todas maneras es gratificante quedar entre los finalista dentro de 1500 participantes y mas de 300 maquetas.

Experimental for now, pipe lamp is an intersection pipe at 45°, it's a table lamp, for desk use or by default a 2 directional rotation lamp shade. I will add some more pictures later. I'm right now working on a full model including a base stand and adding some colors and a back cap.

Network, a chair with a lot of options, suitable for the contract interiors. Because of its elegance, comfort and possibilities, Network has even all the options to be suitable as residential furniture! The chairs can optionally have armrest and even the option of a writing tablet is not at all excluded for education uses.
The chair comes into shape by a bend operation with 3 parallel axes of a simple plywood board and that’s all. In a grid the chairs cutout shape fits with each other perfectly and with no space between them, constituting a network in all directions.
Resuming, Network is not just a chair, it’s a system, even better than this I could say it’s a simple concept that involves main design ideas, like use of renewable and degradable materials, a simple shape with very little loss and a simplicity that could evolve into many different furniture products.
Out of this simple design process other furniture products such a low lounge chairs, tables stools and other accessories can be created and could complement the system. And in the particular case of the chair, a upholstered seat and back can be added for even better comfort.
Seating and furniture products like this one are the kind of designs that suit better our times, being in synchrony with contemporary shapes and remembrances.

The Arrow lamp is the result of a single polished aluminum surface, folded the in a simple way, with an arrow shape. It’s folded shape generates a strong and stable object, where the inside part can receive any kind of lighting emission, either led or halogen or even fluorescent. The light source located then inside the leg of the lamp, is directed to the top reflector that sends the light down to the workspace.
The aluminum structure can be painted in various colors and finishes, and the production process is reduced to a folding operation.
The main concept creating this lamp was to get the most out of a single piece of material, respecting it’s properties an limits, to create at the end an unusual object that hides simplicity behind a complex yet elegant shape.
