The cardboard craftsman

  • • Félix works with cardboard to create his decorative pieces
  • • He believes that materials of little value can result in a beautiful object
  • • He uses techniques from all the artistic disciplines that he has studied

Felix Lozal says that one of the most decisive moments in his career was when he discovered the infinite possibilities of cardboard to express creativity and create art. Since 2010, he has been working in his workshop in Barcelona's Raval neighbourhood with this ordinary and common material to produce striking pieces that invite the viewer to question whether the importance of a handmade piece lies in creative process, in its appearance or its materials. His creations with cardboard, other recycled materials or reusable objects blur the lines between craftsmanship, sculpture and interior design. They are innovative pieces created with organic forms and sustainable values, which compete with those made with the most pretentious and luxurious materials.

Marina bell

Marina bell is the result of bringing sculpture closer to interior design. Made with the same technique and volumetric corrugated cardboard spirals of different sizes assembled together, it is a more open composition to provoke a visual interplay between the interior and exterior of the lamp.

Gota Natur

This lamp is part of Felix Lozal’s first collection made from cardboard. Gota Natur, hand built from multiple cardboard elements, is inspired by a classic glass bead chandelier. Beyond the visual impact, the material gives a contemporary reading of the classicism of the original chandelier.
