Spanish designer Mazimo Riera is an artist that has been practicing his craft for over thirty years in the mediums of painting, photography, poetry and sculpture. The Animal Chair Collection includes a range of species, from sea life to reptiles and even two of the big five.

In-Betweener Season: the awkward time between Winter and Spring or Summer and Fall where you don't quite know what to wear. You end up putting on multiple layers, carrying around an umbrella in your bag, as well as rainboots in the car.. and.. you don't quite know if it will be too warm for the awesome knit cowl/scarf you got at Christmas. Thus, the "inbetweener cowl". Its unofficially official. Comes in four colors frost, seafoam, grey fog and slate and two styles. Straight-up or Twisted. Both infinity cowls but 'twisted' has a twist in it. All made from a super-light warm wool that drapes beautifully over or under your coat.
