Description

Mantis BS1-BL floor lamp is a member of the Mantis collection, designed by Bernard Schottlander in England in 1951 and relaunched by the French brand DCW éditions. Mantis lamp is a combination of flexibility and balance – it captures the feeling of movement. Mantis BS1-BL floor lamp comprises a thin, counterweighted metal leg that rotates 360 degrees and can be tilted and locked into four different angles. The lamp has a sleek tripod base and an elegant metal shade that gives it a unique, soft expression.

Besides a designer, Bernard 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 lamp shades of the Mantis collection.
