An admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951 Schottlander created the Mantis Floor Lamp as part of a series of lamps. 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.
