Advertising agent Javier Acros Pitarque has combined his profession with his childhood passion for robots creating this series of unique, handcrafted creatures.

The robots are made up of parts that have their own history. The central body is formed from tins, boxes and parts of old machines, in a process of ‘urban archaeology’ that seeks out pieces from the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s such as television buttons, photo and film cameras, torches, gramophones, milometers and voltmeters, high in aesthetic value but little appreciated in industrial design.

Pitarque's next challenge is to find a sponsor for an app for smarthphones tables in which anyone can create their own robot!


Step inside the factory and see how these creatures are made.
