The Mantis floor lamp from DCW Editions features a clever system of counterweights combined with a series of strong and flexible metal bars, allowing a four-position angle adjustment. A spun aluminium shade completes the light, offering a wide field of illumination. The light works in numerous settings, from stylishly warming the corner of a living area to lighting up a bedroom, the Mantis can either stand-out or blend-in wherever it is placed.
German-born Bernard Schottlander described himself as a designer for interiors and a sculptor for exteriors.
Movement is intrinsic to all of Schottlander’s work; an artist, an engineer and in no small measure a handyman, he devised a clever system of counterweights combined with a series of strong and flexible metal bars, both utilised in many of his designs including the Mantis lamp.
