Lampe Mantis BS4L Ceiling Lamp
The Lampe Mantis series of lamps uses a smart pivoting counterweight system by using thin, supple, resistant metal connectors. Schottlander’s work demonstrates his skills as an artist, an engineer and in no small measure a handyman. The lamp shade is made using traditional metal working techniques to create a turned and chased aluminium hood. Available with a Chrome or Black Satin body, it has a timeless appeal.

In 1951 British designer Bernard Schottlander created the Lampe Mantis series of lamps. Playfully tensioned between balance and imbalance, his lamps defy the law of gravity to provide a precise and manoeuvrable illumination.
