King of the Cephalopods

Besides being editor of YD, I’m also a unicorn herder and recent crowned King of the Cephalopods, but a king ain’t a king without a throne. In 2010 a minion of mine by the name of Maximo Riera cast a series of chairs inspired by different species called The Animal Chairs – one of which is a black octopus. It’s over-the-top and beautifully executed. In fact, it was the most time consuming and production intensive from the series. Now that I have a proper throne, BOW TO YOUR OVERLORD.


Designer: Maximo Riera

    @Sahsa: This is for people that have a open mind and lives furniture and creativity. Personally, I love it, octopus are amazing creatures.

      good design is a less design. Design is not to make intriguing looking things- it is all about the reason- so what the reason to have this over sized black thing behind you ? Can you give me an answer? Just because it is looking good ?

    wow!! wonderful!

  • … That is AWESOME! Very creative! Design is about creativity and exploring what is possible – It doesn't have to be the most practical design – Because if every design was purely practical – Then where is the fun in that? Ignore the doubters! Now where do I get one? …
