The Mantis BS5 wall lamp is a member of the Mantis collection, designed by Bernard Schottlander in England in 1951 and relaunched by the French brand DCWéditions. The Mantis lamp is a combination of flexibility and balance – it captures the feeling of movement. The beautifully shaped, hardwired Mantis BS5 wall lamp comprises a rotating arm and elegant metal shade that gives it a unique, soft expression.
Besides being a designer, Schottlander was also a sculptor and engineer. Influences from his versatile background can be found from the counterbalanced structure, precisely bend thin metal bars and sculptural lampshades of the Mantis collection.
