My friend Ganesha

November, 2013


Designer Maximo Riera pays homage to India´s most beloved deity in the form of an iconic chair.

A beautiful interpretation of the Elephant God, Spanish designer Maximo Riera´s Elephant Chair is not just a chair but an ode to his admiration of the Hindu culture. Now a part of his famous Animal Collection, the elephant head in this flawlessly sculpted product is a tribute to Lord Ganesha and has an imposing style that is proudly Indian. Created with dense polyurethane and fine leather for the seating, an eye for detail is evident in the design and production. Be it the Indian patterns carved into the front legs inspired by the handmade pieces of furniture found in India, or its shape or the eye for detail that fosters biological accuracy, this chair can never fail to impress.
