Mantis BS1 Floor Lamp Black Satin

The BS1 is like a manifesto of the Mantis collection. So elegant, of great finesse, this floor lamp defies the loies of weightlessness.

Driven by the same energy that led us to repro- duce the series of lights by the French engineer Bernard-Albin Gras and the chair Surpil, we are delighted to present here those by an equally ex- traordinary artist, the English sculptor-designer Bernard Schottlander. As admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951 Schott- lander created the “MANTIS” series of lamps. Movement is intrinsic to all of Schottlander’s work: an artist, an engineer and in no small mea- sure 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 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.
