Mantis BS1 B Floor Lamp | Highlight image 1
A wired silhouette that naturally evokes a praying mantis in weightlessness, the Mantis floor lamp has been structurally tweaked and improved just as Schottlander envisioned in his time. Playing on the tension between balance and imbalance, still composed of a long steel rod topped by a black shade pivoting on a ball joint, resting on its round base, the BS8 L floor lamp has a new base and arm, swapping its original system of rack and counterweight for an ingenious "squaring of the circle" with suggestive graphics and voids.
A true sculpture now adjustable by a dial, gaining a wide versatility of use, the Mantis BS8 lamp gives back to Bernard what belonged to Schottlander.
