The Garriris chair, commonly called the Mickey chair, is an iconic postmodern design that Javier Mariscal made for his own brand, Akaba, in 1987. This year, 2018, celebrates the 90th anniversary of the Mickey Mouse character.

In the 1970s, before designing furniture, Mariscal created a comic called “Los Garriris.” In the 1980s, he began to turn cartoon characters into objects. One of the results is this Garriris Chair that resembles Mickey Mouse with its round ears jutting out from the backrest and its slippered steel feet. An essentialist design of a pop culture icon, it’s made of steel, plywood and quality black leather hide.

The Garriris chair is part of several museum collections including the Musée national d'art moderne, Paris.

Dimensions

  • 38inH x 20.5inW x 21.5inD (16.5in seat height)
