Video: Spanish designer Maximo Riera created these incredible chairs in the shape of animals, taking 480 hours to build each one!
Designer Máximo Riera‘s has created a limited edition range of armchairs, sofas and chairs designed as animals. The collection is a continuation of the all-black animal chair series Riera released a few years ago by expanding the range of mammals, insects and amphibians to include an octopus, bull, elephant, rhino, frog, walrus, whale, hippopotamus, and a rhinoceros beetle. With the help of 3D modelling software, each chair was molded in highly dense polyurethane (which is as resilient as solid wood) and feature steel frames and fine leather seats. Each piece took about 9-11 weeks to produce with an average of 480 hours of work.
