The reveal of the Maximo Riera Octopus Chair marks the beginning of the artist's Animal Chair Collection that will reproduce a selection of distinctive species in the form of seats.

To create this lifelike ocean-dwelling cephalopod mollusk, the designer executed intricate sketches that were translated into 3D graphics and then finally printed as pieces of compressed foam. Exhibiting exceptional detail, the Maximo Riera Octopus Chair redefines the conventional wing-back armchair with deep sea tentacles.
