I-Likeitalot Maximo Riera*s Elephant chair

“Spanish designer maximo riera has continued this ‘animal chair collection’ with ‘the elephant chair’ as an homage to the largest animal walking the earth. Known for memory, intelligence and wisdom. the sculptural furniture object is a representation of the supreme deity ganesha. The overall structure is carved from compressed foam with an internal steel frame. the final object is enveloped in fine leather, allowing all the detail to be refined. although not as heavy as an actual elephant, the chair weighs 160 kg or 353 lbs. The throne, simultaneously furniture and sculpture, welcomes the animal into the human environment, an opposing statement to what has been happening for centuries in the wild. ”
