DCW Mantis BS2 Wall Lamp

Delivery & Exchange Info

An admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951 Schottlander created the Mantis series. 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. The shade also is unique of its kind. Like an acrobat suspended in mid-air, it is made from aluminum using spinning and chasing techniques, 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.
