Designed: 1951 Mantis BS5 Wall Light Grey Green 1951 Origin: France An admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951 Schottlander created the Mantis series. 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. 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, but to which he has brought his sculptor?s eye to create a helical movement in which the symmetrical and the asymmetrical are in opposition. His lights, with their eternal play between balance and imbalance, reveal some of the secrets of what we mean by ?solid? and ?empty?. And like his idol?s mobiles they appear to defy the laws of gravity. Steel and aluminium shade satin black, grey green body Bulb: 1 E14 – ESL 11W (not included) Size: Wall to Shade 45 cm, Wall Mount 11 cm.
