As admirer of Alexander Calder, in 1951 Schottlander created the Mantis 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.‎ Like an acrobat suspended in mid-air, it is made from aluminium using spinning and chasing techniques that are a part of the metalworker’s inventory of skills, 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.‎ The essential poetry of the object is an invitation to enter a dream world of the most judiciously balanced elegance.‎.‎.‎
