The Garriris Chair by Javier Mariscal
Javier Mariscal is a Spanish designer and artist who studied graphics at the Escuela de Grafismo Elisava. After leaving education he worked as an illustrator on underground comics. In the late 1970’s he invented a set of comic characters called ‘Los Garriris’. In the 1980’s he began his career as a furniture designer and painter, but comic illustration still remained a key part of his work. In 1985 he started to turn the characters from ‘Los Garriris’ into objects. Of all his cartoon-like furniture, this chair most closely resembles Mickey Mouse, with the mouse ears on the back.
