480 hours of works and 9-11 weeks to manufacture a seat.
If you are passionate about unique design and you want to add a fashionable jungle element into your apartment, well, you should definitely take a look to the Animal Chair collection by Maximo Riera.
Maximo Riera had been an artist for more than 30 years, and his works include photography, sculpture and painting.
About the Animal Chair collection, the Spanish artist said “This collection gives us an option of admiring what nature is capable of; this is the main reason why from the beginning I wanted to be faithful to the animal’s physique. This series is an homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.”
The limited edition of chairs, but also sofas and armchairs, is a tribute to the animals that live in our planet, underlining how the relationship between human and animal can be harmonic and natural.
Coming in the shapes of Octopus, bull, elephant, rhino, frog, walrus, whale, etc.., each chair is made in different colours, with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
The animal-shaped chairs are made of high dense polyurethane (a consistent and resilient as solid wood), reinforced by a metallic structure and the process to realize them is obviously quite complex. First the initial drawing, then the 3D modelling software (thanks to the CNC technology) and then the production achieved with the help of more than 30 engineers from five different companies. From every drawing only 20 pieces can be made and this is also the reason why the prices ranges from £35.000 up to £65.000.
