Cappellini and Walt Disney Signature present the TRON Armchair designed by Dror Benshetrit for Cappellini during Design Miami 2010.

Cappellini introduces a special range of unique arm chairs, inspired by the soonto-be-released Walt Disney Pictures film TRON: Legacy. These armchairs will be individually hand-finished – each uniquely designed- by Dror Benshetrit who pays homage to the digital landscape of the Outlands terrain in TRON: Legacy. These collectible works of art will be presented in the Cappellini/Poltrona Frau Miami… showroom during Design Miami 2010, as an official satellite show of Design Miami from December 2 through Dec. 10, 2010.

Dror’s mission is to articulate the complex meaning of objects in the simplest of ways. Their uses become a part of their narratives, expressed in transformations that are both metaphorical and literal. Raw Data forms a jagged and angular landscape, serving as a muse for a chair that is comprised of intersecting layers and textures of ‘digital’ rock. Constructed of composite material consisting of impregnated fiberglass with polyester resin processed with manual layering, these Special Production Walt Disney Signature TRON Armchairs invite you to “sit off the grid.”

The TRON Armchair continues the collaboration between Walt Disney Signature and Cappellini, who jointly introduced a line of Disney-inspired limited-edition chairs at the Milano Design Village in April of 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.
