According to their website, the designers at Wildetecture have made it their goal "to create designs that are not static, but designs that are daring and unashamedly vibrant and bold," which they have certainly accomplished with their new Mantis Chair. Intricate and alien, insects can often be the source of inspiration for a variety of creative designs from artwork, fashion to furniture.

The Mantis Chair has an elaborate design, influenced by the giant praying mantis native to Africa. The design is the very antithesis of static design, appearing to almost contain a life of its own, the Mantis Chair emanates with vitality and vigour -- both intimidating and inviting at the same time.
