spanish artist maximo riera has produced a miniature series of his animal chair collection. the models are created entirely using nylon and a type of 3D printing called SLS (selective laser sintering). the process enables the small objects to achieve the best possible quality, resistance and lightest weight. based on the large-scale designs that combined animals and furniture into one item, the unconventional and peculiar compositions are still apparent in these latest versions.


the animal chair collection miniatures are distributed only by iO art gallery and are copyright registered.


‘I am always trying new techniques and materials. from the brainstorming, I have the intention for creating something new and different. art always has to break boundaries and being an artist means that you have to take risks’, says maximo riera.
