The Animal Chair Collection, a series of furniture’s is based on mammals, reptiles, and even insects by Máximo Riera..Maximo Riera chose something as mundane as the chair as the basis of this collection to create an even stronger juxtaposition with the beastly animals. Each animal’s characteristics define the resulting design and type of chair.
The Octopus Chair was the first piece of the Animal Chair collection, and it establishes a base and point of departure for the pieces to come. Besides the octopus the furniture collection also includes rhino, walrus, lion, beetle and whale chairs. Every chair is a limited edition project and each section has been signed and dated for complete authentication.
The Spanish artist Maximo Riera has been working over thirty years with painting, sculpture and poetry. This collection is his first foray into furniture design.
