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.
