the range of armchairs draw on the soon-to-be-released walt disney pictures film ‘torn: legacy’,
a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world. each of the pieces will be individually hand-finished by dror,
who pays homage to the digital landscape of the outlands terrain depicted in the movie.
the new york-based designer’s mission on this project was to articulate the complex meaning of objects
in the simplest of ways; their uses becoming a part of their narratives, expressed in transformations
that are both metaphorical and literal. raw data forms a jag and angular landscape for the chair,
which is comprised of intersecting layers and textures of ‘digital’ rock. the armchairs will constructed from
composite materials that consist of impregnated fiberglass with polyester resin, processed with manual layering.
dror will hand-finish a limited edition number of ‘tron armchairs’
the ‘tron armchair’ continues the collaboration between walt disney signature and cappellini,
who first jointly introduced a line of disney-influenced limited-edition chairs during milan design week 2010.
dror will produce hand-painted variations of the chairs
a prototype of the ‘tron armchair’ constructed out of 100% recycled roto-molded plastic,
with varying textual surfaces will be mass produced an will be presented on an international scale
at the milan furniture fair in april of 2011.
