City Council of Trillo

Trillo. Guadalajara. Spain.

A very special project on the banks of the Tajo 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 municipality Castilian Manchego like many other Spanish towns was incorporating roundabouts on the access roads to the entrance and exit of Trillo.

One of these sculptures was a sculptural group located at the exit roundabout, a tribute to the traditional trade of the ‘’gancheros’’ who used to move wood logs from the top of the mountains using the force of the water from the Tajo River. The wood’s path would continue to the town of Aranjuez, where it ended its river trip, to be handled in different factories. The name of "gancheros" comes from the hooks used to guide or push the wood logs that were stranded along the journey.

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

Javirroyo had very clear ideas of the sculptures he wanted and Signes advised him in the industrial part, during the choice of materials and finishes. The manufacture, assembly 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, of Corten steel as well.
