Mantis Chair by BassamFellows
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 to be a new American classic, an object that possessed measurable gravitas and wasn’t overly indebted to the classic dining chairs associated with mid-century Europe. From certain angles, the Mantis Lounge Chair feels almost like a piece of sculpture. Carved entirely from solid wood, it is a new alternative to the classic and indestructible courthouse chair. Unlike many of its predecessors, however, comfort is at the forefront, with a commodious, ergonomically shaped seat. A hand-stitched leather cushion can be added to amplify both comfort and luxury.
