Javier Mariscal artistic works make him one of the most prolific and multidisciplinary authors of these days. Graphic design, interiors, furniture and visual arts have been signed by the artist born in Valencia living in Barcelona, from the 70s.
Mobles 114 has one of the most recognised and highlighted Mariscal designs: Green chair, an example of sustainability and creativity. Its ECO version is 100% recycled and recyclable (polypropylene from industrial waste), and Colors model is a new, carefully selected range of colours using 100% recyclable materials.
As the designer says, « in spite of its rough appearance it boasts great ergonomics thanks to the polygonal geometry of its seat ». Raised embossing softens the texture by homogenising it, also contrasting with the back of the chair.
And thanks to the rich immagination of Mariscal, we can discover Green is more than a chair. As we can see through the graphic interpretations starring one of the star products of Mobles 114 catalog.
Thick lines, collages, or directly from the notebook. In good company with famous Garriris, in Barcelona or next to the sea, classic scenarios or contemporary atmospheres with old and new classics. Mariscal draws Green generating a life around.
