The Duplex stool was originally designed for the Dúplex bar in Valencia, Spain, planned by Mariscal and Fernando Salas in 1980. For many critics, the shape of this stool, with its five lines holding together by pure chance, symbolises Mariscal's work. "... This stool is for people feeling restless, such as when chatting with someone. It is ironic. It is an object that has been in a fight, or out drinking", explains its author.
In 2007 Mariscal designs a unique cutlery. Everyday objects designed to make people's lives more enjoyable, more exciting. Because what if the design does not work. This cutlery has been one of the promotions with the best response from the readers of El País.
Mariscal travels for the first time to sub-Saharan Africa in 1984. With Miquel Barceló by his side, they cross the desert until they reach Mali. There he discovers the river Niger, the Dogon country, the baobabs, the magic Malian light and, above all, its inhabitants, their smiles and their colors. Africa's powerful spell has been cast on him since then and pulls him to return to discover new places and new people every chance he has.

Mariscal creates the works of digital form, drawing on the ipad with different programs. Subsequently the drawings are prepared for printing before being printed with the giclée process, a complex and high quality procedure, with pigmented inks and art paper, which offers surprising results.
