Called Welcome to the Jungle, the five pieces each have a flat surface supported on four chunky posts.

Alves gave them different colours and proportions to represent a group of toy animals.

The following text is from Alves:


Welcome to the jungle. James (elephant), John (hippopotamus), Jeremy (lion), Jerry (giraffe) and Joe (crocodile).

Like many children, is age, my son loves to play with his ever growing collection of toy animals, and sharing this experience, with him, I came up with the idea of creating a group of special, small, pieces that might make children and adults feel the same about items of furniture. Welcome to the JUNGLE is a group of 5 friends that you can use almost anyway that you want. They can be tables, stools, or even coat hangers. They can even jump over one another in order to make some shelves. Made of wood, and with a bright and glossy skin they've arrived and they have made the jungle their home.

Take one home. Take them all home. Go wild, but most of all enjoy. You just have to catch them first!
