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. 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. This wall lamp has an on/off switch on the base.
