The Octopus Chair.

This is not necessarily just a chair. It is a work of art. I have posted it here because it is just so over-the-top that I simply could not resist. It will not be found in any of my upcoming projects, however, the creativity behind this chair is what fascinates me. According to Maximo Riera, the artist who designed this chair, "The Octopus Chair is the first piece of the Animal Chair collection, and it establishes a base and point of departure for the pieces to come. The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal's natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is 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."
