Italian furniture company Segis has launched the new Dragonfly chair.

Designed by Odo Fioravanti, the chair was inspired by nature, specifically the body shape of a dragonfly. It has a polypropylene shell, with each seat mimicking the vertical ribbing found on a dragonfly’s wings. Keeping with the natural theme, Fioravanti selected colors found in nature, such as forest green and smoky grey.

The Dragonfly is available as either a chair or stool and casters can be added to the base.
