In 2016 I added two new lamps to my home. Both of them was on my wish list for many years, so it was a long time coming. Let me introduce this beauty – the Mantis BS2, designed by German born and British educated sculptor Bernard Schottlander in 1951.

This is one of the most beautiful lamps I have ever seen. It is a work of art as much as it is a lamp. And I have been fascinated with it for years. When I moved in to my apartment 3.5 years ago I went looking for the perfect lamp for the dining area. I looked at so many lamps and couldn’t seem to make up my mind. I kept coming back to the Mantis BS2 lamp, so it had to be the one. And I am so happy with it!

Inspired by insects

Movement is key in all that Schottlander created. He was an artist, an engineer as well as a handyman. He devised a clever system of counterweights, which was combined with a series of strong and flexible metal rods. The result was a series of lamps that look as if they defy gravity. They were inspired by insects. It is very flexible and rotates in all directions.

The Mantis lamp is part of a series of 5 beautiful lamps – all sold at Roomstore. If you don’t know Roomstore yet, you should stop by their elegant Copenhagen show room/shop filled with lots of gorgeous design to please any design lover.

      Tusind tak :-) Jeg elsker dens skulpturelle form op imod billedvæggen. Det blev endnu bedre, end jeg havde forestillet mig.

      Rigtig skøn aften til dig også!

    I fell in love with MANTIS BS5 when stayed at 71 Nyhavn Hotel where it was used as bedside lamp. I am so addicted to it’s organic shape. Congrats on your new addition.
