Mantis Desk

Find your local stockist

British designer Samuel Wilkinson’s idea was to create a desk that would work charmingly in a compact home environment with a clean elegant aesthetic. The Mantis Desk features a flexible design that comes with attachable accessories to help keep your workspace neat and tidy.

The solid wood top has a removable plate that allows easy access to a storage tray hiding unsightly plugs and cables. Other accessories include a small draw for a laptop or papers, a file holder and a back panel that can act as a note board or in an open space as a privacy screen.

The table’s four steel legs are also detachable, making the entire workplace easy to store or transport. The design lends itself to a home office or is ideal in tandem, back to back, in an office.

Design blog Better Living Through Design said "the Mantis Desk does successfully blend in as a simple, modern workspace by hiding all manner of cables and providing just enough space for notes and office supplies. In multiples or alone, this desk would do well in keeping your officemates- or just you- organised and on task."

"The framework for Mantis desk was to create an affordable compact work space with a clean elegant aesthetic that can work well in domestic setting as well as an office. The flexible design comes with optional accessories that help to keep your environment neat and tidy. The solid wood top has a removable plate that allows easy access to a storage tray hiding unsightly plugs and cables. All of the components independently fix to the solid top so can be placed as desired by the user. To highlight the natural patterns of the striated solid wood top all the elements have been powder in a textured off white." Dailytonic

Care notes for the Mantis Desk

  • Use a dampened, soft, non-abrasive, lint-free colourless cloth to wipe the entire surface of your wood, moving in the direction of the grain.
  • Dry the wood using a second non-abrasive cloth. Remember to wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  • You do not need to polish the wood as part of your regular maintenance, as we finish our products with a matte, non-yellowing clear polyurethane lacquer for its natural appearance and durability.
  • Never use wax-based polish or ammonia-based cleaning products on your wood.

Wood appearance

We supply high-quality furniture grade wood. This may vary for grain, colour, knots and other markings. We do our best to select and match as appropriate but we cannot accept returns on the basis of natural variations. Any special requirements for colour, matching, etc. must be provided in writing.

Wood warpage, shrinkage, and dimensional changes

Wood is an active material, in that it is known to have dimensional changes depending upon moisture, temperature, humidity etc.

We purchase and supply furniture grade 1 wood which has been dried to correct moisture content but sometimes warpage, shrinkage etc, can still occur, especially when the furniture is shipped to drier climates from where it was made. We will accept returns if the timber was not appropriately dried but we cannot accept returns that stem from climactic differences. Should movement occur in the wood addressing issues of temperature and moisture usually resolves the issue.

Samuel Wilkinson

Samuel Wilkinson graduated in furniture and related product design at Ravensboure College of Art & Design in 2002.

While at Ravensbourne Wilkinson won several design awards, including the RSA award. He went straight into employment working for leading consultancies such as Tangerine, Fitch:London, and PearsonLloyd.

During the last 6 years he has worked on projects for leading clients such as British Airways, Audi, LG, Samsung, and Virgin Airways.

Samuel Wilkinson set up his industrial studio at the end of 2007 and a year later, in 2008 Wilkinson completed his largest work, co-designing L’arbre de Flonville in Lausanne, Switzerland.

It was the first of a series of large projects to be completed as part of the regeneration of an old industrial area, Le Flon. The work consists of a contemporary town square featuring a 16m sculptural metal tree surrounded by root benches.

Wilkinson has since gained a number of private commissions and exhibited a full collection of furniture during London Design Festival 2008.
