Created by Umbra's Design team, the Millipede Bar Chair takes cues from the natural environment. This fascinating bar stool concept is inspired by millipede insects, mimicking their countless legs and curved body structure.

An elliptical shape makes up the chair's comfortable seat and conforms to one's body shape. The solid form of the seat is balanced atop a number of thin elements that serve as the chair's legs. This futuristic design relies on simplicity and function while highlighting subtle details that contribute to the chair's unique aesthetic.

Umbra designer Michael Samoriz's creation combines a traditional beauty with forward-thinking concepts and impeccable execution. A contemporary and unexpected take on nature's inspiration, the Millipede Bar Chair is never too literal but is instead innovative and inspiring.
