Mantis BS1 B Floor Lamp by Bernard Schottlander for DCW Editions
As an admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951, Schottlander created the Mantis series of lamps.
Movement is intrinsic to all of Schottlander's work. An artist, an engineer, and in no small measure a handyman he devised a clever system of counterweights combined with a series of strong and flexible metal bars. T
he shade is also unique. Like an acrobat suspended in midair, it is made from aluminum using spinning and chasing techniques that are a part of the metalworker's inventory of skills, but to which he has brought his sculptor's eye to create a helical movement.
