In 2003, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories. BassamFellows’ pioneering Craftsman Modern aesthetic, which marries architectural authority with a minimal-artisanal philosophy, was introduced with the debut of the iconic BassamFellows Tractor Stool at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Inspired by the noble praying mantis, the Mantis is sturdy and solid, yet visually light. Carved entirely from solid wood, it is a new alternative to the classic and indestructible courthouse chair. A hand-stitched leather cushion can be added to amplify both comfort and luxury.
