Máximo Riera's animal chair collections are a testament to what the creative mind can accomplish!  These are not your average furniture pieces and any addition of these collection to one's home will speak volumes of the owner's themselves! Máximo's inspiration comes from his travel and experiences through Europe and the Caribbean Islands.  His attention to detail is amazing!

Born in Asturias, Northern Spain, Máximo has now retired to his studio in Cadiz, where he paints and sculpts each day.

His 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.



Felice Varini, a Swiss artist, is an artist who is known for his geometric perspective paintings, (often called anomorphic illusions), in rooms and other architectural spaces.  We found his works very fascinating as it gives the illusion of one type of perspective - the complete painting from the vantage point, (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), and a whole other perspective from outside the vantage point, the viewer will see ‘broken’ fragmented shapes, and all this using the vast urban space around him such as buildings, walls and streets - as his canvas!

For example:

What is actually a circle or made to look like a circle from this vantage point....

Is actually perceived differently when looking at it from different angles or outside the vantage point...

Varini argues that the work exists as a whole - with its complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.
