IMG_4552I love a plug-in sconce that doesn’t need to be hardwired. I love a lamp that moves around to put light where you need it. I love a sexy fixture.

The Mantis BS2 Wall lamp, designed in 1951 by Bernard Schottlander as an homage to his idol Alexander Calder, does all of the above. You can see the nod to Calder in the way the light fixture seems to balance and float so delicately, yet its appearance is so bold. Love. Xo.
