View Slideshow

Cappellini and Walt Disney Signature present a series of armchairs designed by Dror Benshetrit for Cappellini launching this week during Design Miami 2010. The chair will be on display in the Cappellini/Poltrona Frau Miami Showroom, as an official satellite show of Design Miami from December 2 through December 10, 2010.

The range of chairs is inspired by the the digital landscape of the Outlands terrain in the soon-to-be-released Walt Disney Pictures film TRON: Legacy. Each will be individually hand-finished and unique, constructed of composite material consisting of impregnated fiberglass with polyester resin processed with manual layering. A mass-produced 100% recycled roto-molded plastic version will be available next year.

The TRON Armchair is a continuation of the collaboration between Walt Disney Signature and Cappellini, who jointly introduced a line of Disney-inspired limited-edition chairs at the Milano Design Village earlier this year. With both companies’ heritage steeped in innovation, collaboration and design, the Walt Disney Signature range continues to tell stories and inspires customers around the world.
