Pray That the Mantis Chair Doesn’t Prey on You

by Hazel Chua

It’s no secret that I have this insane and inane fear of insects. Cockroaches, grasshoppers, crickets, preying mantis, you name it, and I’ll scream when I see it. This is all to the annoyance of my dad, who just swats at it or sweeps it out of the way when he sees one. So you’d probably understand my sheer refusal to sit on one of these Mantis Chairs, if ever I come across one.

Mantis ChairI probably wouldn’t care if I had been standing the whole day or if my legs were cramping; I’d rather remain standing than sit in the arms (or legs?) of a gigantic, albeit wooden, preying mantis. This unique pest of a chair was designed by the folks over at Wildetect, who took inspiration from the African wilderness.

Mantis Chair

The chair doesn’t look comfortable at all, although I do have to admit that it looks pretty fine – if you’re into bugs. I can only imagine the reaction of other insectophobes like me when they walk into a dimly lit room and see the shadow of a gigantic mantis right there in the middle. I assure you, it won’t be a pretty sight (or sound.)
