DESIGNER / MANUFACTURER
Inspired by the noble praying mantis, the signature stance and powerful limbs of this chair offers a study in contrasts. Strong and elegant, sharp and curved, thick and thin — the Mantis is sturdy and solid, yet visually light. Designer Craig Bassam conceived the chair with the intention to create a seat that possessed measurable gravitas and wasn’t overly indebted to the classic dining chairs associated with mid-century Europe.
The chair was designed with an emphasis on comfort with an ergonomically shaped seat. A hand-stitched leather cushion may be added to amplify the seat’s comfort with an elegant touch.
Carved in solid wood, the Mantis chair patinas beautifully with age.
