MANTIS BS3 TABLE LAMP by DCW Editions
Mantis BS3 Table Lamp, DCW Editions.
The Mantis lamps were 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 is also unique. Poised - like an acrobat suspended in midair - it is 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 BS3 lamp is perfect for a desk, a console table or a bedside table as it allows light to be directed with ease. The lampshade can be rotated in 4 positions and the base rotates at 360°.
