Maximo Riera’s animal furniture, especially his Octopus Chair, is going to stagger your mind. The furniture flows from dramatic animal sculpture into dramatically beautiful furniture in a single step from the back to the front of the chair. The Octopus Chair streams down onto the floor with all the tentacles reaching out into the room, the eyes peering at you, the beak ready to snap down on you if you wander within reach. The same drama is found in the Rhino Chair and the Walrus Chair with the animals appearing almost alive in their black glory. The opposite sides of each chair feature a comfortable looking chair you can relax in and enjoy your reign as the king of the beasts.
