The Hippopotamus Chair by Maximo Riera

Do you remember stunning animal chairs by Maximo Riera that we periodically show you on the pages of BeautifulLife? Today we want to show latest creation of Maximo Riera – the Hippopotamus Chair. Created in the same style as the rest of chairs from Animal Chair Collection this Hippopotamus Chair was created in limited edition of 20 items. “The Hippopotamus is a semiaquatic herbivore mammal, peculiar for its barrel-shaped torso, and is one of the most aggressive and unpredictable creatures in the world. For this design, its tremendous size and volume has been preserved, evading any sections or partitions along its body, in order to accomplish an entire life-size piece. The seat was mounted on top of the animal’s upper body, having two different hemispheres, one is functional and the other creates the illusion of the animal’s imposing presence.” The price tag for one chair is $95,000.
