Maximo Riera Octopus Chair

Anyone who has ever held an office job or has dwelled in a basement knows the importance of a really comfortable chair. After all, hours – or days – of sitting down with the computer in front of you can only distract you from lower back pain and whatnot for so long. At the end of the day, a chair that will cradle you is what you yearn for.

Then there’s the coolness factor. Sometimes, you totally forget about comfort – even for just a minute – when you are faced with something like this.

That’s the Octopus Chair designed by Maximo Riera, painter and sculptor based in Cadiz. ((Source: Maximo Riera)) The chair is the first in a collection called The Animal Chair collection. The collection is going to feature a host of other pieces of furniture based on mammals, reptiles, and even insects. If this first piece is anything to go by, I say that we are in for eye-popping treats from Riera.  Here’s a closer look at the back of the chair.  You’d think that that was a real octopus!

And here’s an image of the chair from the side.

If you are thinking about whether or not the chair is comfy – as I initially thought myself – this image might give you more insight.  The padding seems good enough, don’t you think? ;)

I am not a big octopus fan – although it is quite tasty, I have to admit – but this chair would look awesome in a decent library with hardwood shelves. Then again, it would be awesome just about anywhere. I can’t wait to see the rest of The Animal Chair collection!
