Walt Disney Signature and Cappellini unveil limited edition range


MUMBAI: Walt Disney Signature and Cappellini unveiled five limited

edition chairs at the Milan Furniture Fair in Italy. This introduction follows the success of Walt Disney Signature’s dining installation in collaboration with Cappellini for last month’s Dining By Design DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) event in New York City.


A 3-dimensional sculpting of Mickey Mouse sitting on a giant chair,

previously used for the DIFFA event display, was recreated at Fuori

Salone, Milano Design Village to mark the launch. The Mickey sculpture

is made of polyurethane, measures more than three metres tall and

weighs 40 kilos.


"Walt Disney and Cappellini both have a shared approach to design,

creativity and collaboration that turns everyday products into

functional works of art. Collaborating with a leading Italian design

brand specialising in contemporary furnishings like Cappellini is

another exciting step in continuing Walt Disney Signature’s philosophy

on design and innovation," said Home and Fashion, Disney Consumer

Products executive vice president Pamela Lifford.


"This collaboration is the premise for a joint Cappellini and Walt

Disney Signature stylistic commitment that promises to become a new,

interesting and exciting chapter in the history of contemporary

design, combining Cappellini’s strong inclination for innovation with

the magical creativity of Disney," added Cappellini art director

Giulio Cappellini.
