Maximo Riera Octopus Chair Is An Eight-Legged Throne For A Two-Legged Creature

Paul the octopus seems to be in our minds a long after he left for his heavenly abode. Not related to him, but the Octopus Chair brought back some fond old memories. The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects.

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 Octopus Chair is the first piece of the Animal Chair collection, and it establishes a base and point of departure for the pieces to come.

The chair can to life following a design cycle evolving sketches, 3D renders and CNC’d blocks that have been handcrafted. Limited to just 20 pieces, it is priced at £35,000 ($55,000).
