If you happen to be looking for a new set of chairs and like to stand out from the crowd, take a look at this almost alive Animal Chair collection by Máximo Riera.
Máximo Riera has been a practicing artist for over thirty years. Inspired by his travel and experiences through Europe and the Caribbean Islands, Máximo’s vibrant use of colour and evocative attention to detail have been an inspiration which convey the meaning of his creations.
The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles. Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is 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 main reason Maximo Riera chose to create a chair is because it is an everyday object, something taken as common and banal in our lives.
“Whilst considering the chair’s basic functionality, I also wanted to bring it alive, make it more present and create a stronger link between the spectator, the piece and the surrounding space,” says the artist.
