MANTIS BS4 CEILING LIGHT by DCW Editions
Mantis BS4 Ceiling Light, DCW Editions.
The Mantis collection was designed in the early 1950s by sculptor Bernard Schottlander. Schottlander, an admirer of Alexander Calder, devised his lights with the idea of movement, developing a clever counterweight pivot system, using flexible and resistant metal rods.
The shade are also unique. Poised - like an acrobat suspended in midair - they are made from spun aluminium using traditional metal working skills, but to which the artist Schottlander added a helical movement, opposing the symemetrical and the asymmetrical.
The Mantis BS4 ceiling light is available in two colours : black or grey-green, and two sizes.
Bulb specification : E14 - Max 11W - LED (not included).
