An­i­mal Magic

Indonesia Tatler Homes - - TRENDS -

Span­ish artist Maximo Ruera has cre­ated a range of chairs en­ti­tled the “An­i­mal Chairs” col­lec­tion, which was in­spired by the shapes of an oc­to­pus, a rhino, an ele­phant and a hippo, all made from high-den­sity polyurethane com­bined with a metal­lic frame. The pro­duc­tion process takes nine to 11 weeks, mean­ing that each in­di­vid­ual an­i­mal chair takes 480 hours to make. “This col­lec­tion gives us the op­tion of ad­mir­ing what na­ture is ca­pa­ble of; this is the main rea­son why from the be­gin­ning I wanted to be faith­ful to the an­i­mal’s physique,” said the de­signer. “This se­ries is an 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.”
