Octopus Chair by Maximo Riera 1 Creative Octopus Chair by Maximo Riera

Spanish artist maximo riera has designed ‘octopus chair’, a limited edition piece that is part of a larger collection entitled ‘animal chairs’.  The series consists of more than fifteen different works where the marriage between furniture and animal is the main component. Choosing the chair based on its banality in our everyday lives, the series looks to bring life to the basic function of the object, making it more present while creating a stronger connection between the spectator, the chair and its environment. The Octopus Chair is supposed to be an elegant and majestic sculptural piece of furniture, one that remains true to the animal’s every detail. Maximo’s portfolio site speaks about the attention to details and fidelity to the octopus’ shape, which is displayed in strong connection to the classic chair: “The artist wanted to be faithful to the animal’s physique and the natural majesty of its movements. Maximo therefore attended to each physical detail of the octopus in order to make the animal the unique protagonist of the whole piece.” Over thirty professionals worked on this project, using a CNC milling machine to produce the chair. Modern technology has allowed for the shapes to be cut out of foam and then assembled into what became the Octopus Chair.
