Mantis BS1 floor lamp was created by Bernard Schottlander. In 1951 Schottlander designed the Mantis series of lamps. He devised a clever system of counterweights combined with a series of strong, and flexible metal bars. His lights, with their eternal play between balance and imbalance, essential poetry of the object, is an invitation to enter a dream world of the most judiciously balanced elegance.
The shade also is unique of its kind. Like an acrobat suspended in mid-air, it is made from aluminium 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 in which the symmetrical and the asymmetrical are in opposition.
