The Walrus Chair

The Walrus Chair


The Animal Chair Collection by Maximo Riera


This piece has been designed to be the first Chaise Longue of the Collection; it perfectly resembles the animal’s figure from one side to the other. The Walrus was drafted to accommodate the seats upon its back, merging into the animal, with a flawless compatibility. This fact gives uniqueness to the composition. 

The Artist wanted to preserve the real elevation of the animal, making the person who sits on it, share the same perspective. One of the most challenging aspects in this work was the skin’s texture and consistency.  The Walrus owns a natural volume and magnitude, an attribute that makes it recognizable and distinct from any other spices. Its thick skin wrinkles and rests along its surface; this was a key element to have in consideration to prevent an artificial result.  To achieve the best possible outcome, the artist uses the most diversified and accurate graphic biological data.  For that reason, The Walrus Chair is an outstanding piece, which holds a vital spirit.
