A very special project on the banks of the Tagus River

In 2011 we received a call from the designer Javirroyo to collaborate industrially in the manufacture of two sculptures for the City Council of Trillo in Guadalajara. This Castilian-La Mancha municipality, like many other Spanish towns, was incorporating traffic circles in the access roads to and from Trillo.

Una de estas esculturas era un conjunto escultórico ubicado en la rotonda de salida, homenaje al tradicional oficio de los gancheros que se dedicaban a bajar troncos de madera desde lo alto de las montañas utilizando la fuerza del agua del río Tajo. The path of the wood would continue to the town of Aranjuez, where its river journey ended, to be treated in different factories. El nombre de “gancheros” viene de los ganchos que utilizaban para ir orientando o empujando los troncos que quedaban varados a lo largo de la travesía.

At the entrance traffic circle Javirroyo created a cloud of 50 fish that moved with the force of the air, representing water, movement and energy.

Javirroyo had very clear ideas about the sculptures he wanted and Signes advised him on the industrial side, the choice of materials and finishes. Production, staging and lighting were carried out by our Company. The sculptures were constructed in corten steel for the hooks and with stainless steel masts and the moving fish in corten steel.
