The Animal Chair collection by Maximo Riera
The first piece of this strange at first glance collection was the Octopus Chair. Natural vitality of the animal is striking; every detail is made with careful precision. The Animal Chair collection is a creation of Maximo Riera that took him three years to be completed. The collection is great and includes wide range of species, among which there is a rhinoceros, a lion, a whale, a walrus and even some of insects. The chairs are not exactly portable because of their weight. Carved from compressed foam, inside of which there is a steel frame to stabilize the form, each chair is enveloped in real leather. The collection has a philosophical meaning of the unity of human and animal kingdom which inhabits our planet.
