Mantis BS5 Wall light by DCW éditions Black

DCW éditions Wall light Black Metal. Dimensions: From wall to shade: L 45 cm – Wall fixing: Ø 11 cm – Shade: Ø 22 x H 20.5 cm. Bernard Schottlander, a British designer and sculptor, and a big fan of Alexander Calder, has created a range of lamps called Mantis in 1951. Movement is the source of inspiration for all of the Schotlander’s works. His lamps play with the tension between balance and imbalance, they seem to define the laws of gravity. These poetic objects invite you to dream… Extremely stable but providing mobile and performing light, Mantis lamps are highly precise mechanisms. Bernard Schottlander, artist and engineer at the same time, has invented a smart pivoting counterweight system by using thin, supple, resistant metal connectors. This wall light features a steel arm (L 45 cm), horizontally rotating to 200° and vertically tilting to 20,5 cm. The rotating lampshade allows you to train the light source in any direction. This wall light allows for a precise control of the direction of light for example to highlight works hanging on a wall. It can also replace a bedside lamp in a bedroom. You can use of single piece of these or create a spectacular effect in an entrance hall by arranging several. This wall lamp has an on/off switch on the base. Mantis lights, originally hand-crafted products in limited editions, are from now on being reproduced to please all collectors and lovers of industrial design.
