The Manta Chair by DesigNNobis is Inspired by the Graceful Sea Creature

The Manta Chair is perhaps one of the most elegant interpretations of the sea creature when it comes to furniture. Sleek and simple, the Manta Chair captures the fluidity of its form beautifully while adding a bit of visual interest through the use of a transparent plastic material. By doing so, the skeletal qualities of the manta ray are strikingly incorporated to add a nice touch of detail.

Designed by DesigNNobis, a studio based in Ankara, Turkey, the Manta Chair is all about detail. For instance, while the two front legs are fashioned out of metal, the back leg is made out of wood and extends along the spine of the backrest all the way down to the ground. It is available in different colors.
