LCI Design School students collaboration with El Torrent

LCI Design School students collaboration with El Torrent

First and second year Product students at LCI Design School in Barcelona will elaborate a new collection of lamps for El Torrent that will be launched in 2019.

We have already begun to work with a visit to our workshop of 12 students and their two teachers. It was a productive session in which we tell them our work philosophy, based on creativity, teamwork and inspired by nature and the fantastic environment that surrounds us.

Joan Genebat, our industrial designer, marked the basic lines that the new collection must meet: origin, simplicity, warmth, environment and sustainability. And Jordi Puig, the production manager, taught the students about the manufacturing process in our factory.

Thanks to this collaboration, students will be able to know the real project of a company based on author work, far from industrial and standardized processes. For us, this new collection allows us to support young talents. Their creations will be presented with their name under the values  and philosophy of our brand.

We put the light to the Pago de Carraovejas warehouse

We put the light to the Pago de Carraovejas warehouse

Embedded within Pago de Carraovejas (Peñafiel, Valladolid, Spain), Ambivium restaurant was born from the tireless research for the perfect balance between tradition and innovation. It is a restaurant ready to awaken all your senses, it is a different gastronomic proposal in the Ribera del Duero, an enotourism experience with which we collaborate with our Versatil lamps. A hanging and modular model with a modern and contemporary style.

In that project, the architecture studio wanted to give a major importance to the light and the integration of the restaurant with the surroundings. And that is where Versatil fuses its forms with the undulating terrain of the vineyards that surround the room. It is an Eloy Puig design available in three different sizes that allow you to create circles or, as in Ambivium, billowing and suggestive shapes. It is a modular model with LED 2700k included, it has three different lengths and it offers now a narrower height. Versatil includes a height adjustment system using steel cables and a single point of light for all modules.

Quality, avant-garde and a deep respect for the traditional define the proposal of Ambivium restaurant, and the philosophy of El Torrent can not fit better in a place like this.

New Catalogue

New Catalogue

El Torrent started this 2018 working hard in the new catalog that will be released in few weeks. In fact, we are already finalizing the details of the book that will collect every single novelty. 

The 2018 catalog will put the accent on five new collections. The first one will be AURA, a model that will be presented during the month of February. AURA is a wall lamp designed by Joan Genebat handmade with mineral cast. However, AURA is not the one and unique collection we prepared, we also created HOOPS and EROL, both are wall lamps that combine wood with different materials. Apart from wall lamps, we created JUNE, a floor lamp you will discover shortly, and DENTO, a beautiful hanging lamp.

El Torrent’s new catalog aims to transmit the soul of our creations. That is why we worked with the best graphic designers and photographers. Estudi Cel·lula is a prestigious team of creative minds that provided the catalog with a clean, organized and useful design. 

For Starp Estudi, in charge of the photography, Mas Can Batlle as well as El Torrent were an important source of inspiration. Mas Can Batlle is also one of the few Catalan rural houses with five wheat ears (similar to five stars applied to hotels), and it was where we shotted. All this allowed us to experiment with lights and shadows, with the different decorations of the farmhouse and the natural surroundings.

The result is a project that shines with its own light. We are looking forward to show you the new El Torrent catalog for this 2018, so stay tuned!

Del mismo modo, queremos descubrir las tendencias internacionales de la temporada, compartir nuestra experiencia y escuchar las necesidades de cada cliente.

Una colección destacará sobre encima del resto: la familia Koord. En concreto, se presentarán los modelos aptos para exterior. Todos ellos se han creado con materiales preparados para esta función, aprovechando al máximo la versatilidad del hilo trenzado, de sus colores y las formas ideadas por Eloy Puig.

Koord Portátil es un modelo de sobremesa sin cables y LED recargable. Está hecha con cordón trenzado de polipropileno sometido a tratamiento UVA, lo que permite su uso exterior con todas las garantías y tiene certificado IP66. Su disponibilidad en cuatro medidas y en colores diferentes, así como su fácil movilidad y versatilidad, la hacen perfecta para cualquier espacio al aire libre de un hotel o restaurante.

Las otras dos Koord que pueden utilizarse en exterior son igualmente versátiles y están pensadas para integrarse en el espacio desde la pared o el techo. La primera es el modelo aplique y plafón, que se fija por imanes y mantiene la forma habitual de la lámpara, así como las opciones de diferentes colores.

La Koord de suspensión, por su lado, permite jugar con la altura a través de un cable de acero regulable. De esta manera, se ajusta a las características del espacio elegido e introduce su propio toque de color.

New portable outdoor lamps – Koord Model

New portable outdoor lamps – Koord Model

The Koord line grows with three new portable models, floor and table lamps, designed to be used in indoor and outdoor spaces. These three lamps keep the contemporary and characteristic design of the Koord family, handmade with braided cord in several colours and inspired by nature.

The feature that distinguishes the new Koord lamps is their portability: they can be moved to different spaces without wires thanks to their long battery life, 7 hours full power. Light intensity can be regulated depending on the needs of each moment or the atmosphere we want to create, with three positions of 10%, 50% and 100%.

Outdoor use is another strength of these portable models. They are absolutely suitable for spaces such as yards, terraces or balconies: the floor lamp has IP65 rating and the table lamp has IP66 rating. These three Koord lamps are made with UV-treated polypropylene cord, which ensures great outdoor resistance.

Koord Outdoor, the floor lamp, is 150cm. It has a base made of white polymer concrete that eases its positioning in a minimalist and contemporary way.

Koord table lamp is available in three different models, which differ in colours and sizes, so they can be combined to create original and cozy spaces. They have also a remote control system and ON/OFF touch switch in the module base that make the easy to use.

These three new lamps join the Koord family, which includes a wall lamp, a ceiling lamp, a hanging lamp and another floor lamp with three beech wood legs. The whole Koord line has been designed by Eloy Puig, who has taken as reference and inspiration the unique spot where El Torrent studio is placed, in the region of La Garrotxa.

The shapes and the colours of the Koord lamps give a contemporary and elegant touch to any space, but also a distinctive and original shade. The new models also allow to create an atmosphere in an outside space simply and quickly, saving transportation or wire complications.
