MANTIS

GO BACK

Mantis is a furniture set with one identical wooden leg that forms a desk, lamp, desk&lamp, side table and as well as seating (stool) combined together with metal frames.

Main inspiration behind the design is the use of one triangular element for varying structural needs to build different type of furnitures; this way same structural item becomes a versatile element and creates a multi-functional set with minimum loss of aesthetic assets. Mantis suggests how functional pure aesthetics can be.

Mantis has won Red Dot Design Award (2015) in furniture concept category.
