The world of art and furniture design is always merging and crisscrossing over, but now and again you get something so special it stands out like a sore thumb. That is where Maximo Riera comes into it, as he has been making some very special chairs for a while now and all of them have to be seen to be believed…

Maximo Riera: Whale Chair
Maximo Riera: Whale Chair

10 – Whale

These chairs as you will soon realise for yourself are more about art than comfort and convenience. But that is what makes them worth talking about over every other chair ever made.

Maximo Riera: Frog Chair

9 – Frog

there is something a little weird about this frog seat that features just the back of the amphibian rather than the front like most of the artist other pieces of art.

Maximo Riera: 3D Printed Rhino Chair

8 – Micro Rhino

Yes, that really is a 50p coin. Not only does the artist make the full-size works of art, he also makes little micro versions of them, all 3D printed!

Maximo Riera: 2015 Whale Chair

7 – Whale

I know we have already had the whale chair but this one featuring natural colours and tones seems to make the chair even better than the artistic and often moody black ones.

Maximo Riera: Rhino Chair

6 – Rhino

Some of you might have noticed how Maximo often uses the animals own legs or body features to create the legs and make the chair stable. Well, I thought it was a nice (if predictable) touch.

Maximo Riera: Elephant Chair

5 – Elephant

This is apparently the heaviest from the artists animal chairs collection. But this one as with all the animal chairs are just 1 of only 20 limited edition art projects he will ever make, but he is an artist who uses many forms and styles to make his art so it might not be chairs, but maybe tables next!

Maximo Riera: Walrus Chair

4 – Walrus

Then the feel of these chairs is luxurious. Made with rich leather upholstery they might not look like it, but each one is said to be incredibly comfortable! But then again how uncomfortable could it feel resting on a giant walrus?!?

Maximo Riera: Octopus Chair

3 – Octopus

All of these chairs is said to be biologically accurate in every way. From the look of the animal to the feel of it, and even the weight (if they were the size of the chair.) Some of these chairs weigh 300lb+! Not one to be moved around the house very often then.

Maximo Riera: Beetle Chair

2 – Beetle

Definitely one of my favourites in this animal kingdom furniture collection. I could imagine this in the manager’s office of a zoo, or wildlife reserve.

Maximo Riera: Hippo Chair

1 – Hippo

Who doesn’t need a Hippo chair/sofa in their lives? Well with an average price of £50,000 I think I will have to write a lot more animal posts before I can afford one.
