Apart from his three previous chairs, which include the Octopus chair, Rhinoceros chair and the Walrus chair, he has taken exceptional paint to create the Elephant chair. Maximo pays homage to the largest animal in explicit detailing and traditional wood carving. An elephant is supposed to be very intelligent and has a never ending memory and wisdom and Maximo brings this all out in the supreme representation of Ganesha. The designer has drawn a lot of inspiration from the Hindu culture and has brought out the head of the mammal in superb display. He has used the traditional carvings, which are generally found on original hand made pieces of traditional furniture.
Explicit detailing in the carving
Maximo has used the distinctive asymmetrical surface by translating it into morph metric data by using advanced software. This makes for the refined natural feel and look of the design although the chair weighs only 160 kg. He has carved out a seat on the half back portion of the elephant’s body, which does not in any way detract from its natural look. He used compressed foam with an internal steel frame for craving the overall structure. The whole ensemble is then covered in fine leather for that wildlife feel. This chair than symbolically represents the welcome extended to an opposing element of nature right into the home. It becomes a throne where the elephant is given an honored position.
