Mantis Lamp is a prototype LED designed by Moritz Böttcher and Sören Henssler. The compact nature of the LED Strips allows for the construction to be consisted of no more than a few wooden pieces and an aluminum tube. The light can adjust in height, and rotate continuously.
The lamp comes in two different color variations: black stained ash and maple white pigmented. The maple white definitely attracts my attention. Its airy, clean, and elegant composure is just something I would love to have sitting on my desk next to me. I also like the fact that, instead of trying to hide the wire with a white or neutral color, the designer chose to emphasize its presence by giving it a bright contrast.
