  1. What is the DCW Mantis BS2 Mini?
  2. The Mantis BS2 mini is a directional wall light with a system of counterweights which allow for smooth movement and precise placement. The mini version was originally designed as a prototype for the original and larger Mantis BS2.
  3. How does the counterweight system work on the DCW BS2 Mini Wall Lamp?
  4. The counterweight system on the DCW BS2 Mini Wall Lamp allows the luminaire to be rotated by up to 200 degrees so that its light can be directed exactly where it is needed. The system consists of a series of weights that are placed at strategic points along the arm of the lamp. These weights help to balance the lamp and allow it to rotate smoothly.
  5. How is the Mantis BS2 mini different from the original Mantis BS2?
  6. The Mantis BS2 Mini is a smaller version of the original Mantis BS2. Both lamps are inspired by the praying mantis, but the Mini is more compact and can be rotated to direct light exactly where it is needed. The Mini also has a dark matte finish, making it more understated and elegant.
  7. How is the shade constructed?
  8. The shade is constructed from aluminium using spinning and chasing techniques. This gives it a unique sculptural look that is both eye-catching and functional. The small size of the shade makes it easy to move and position, while the counterweights ensure that it stays in place once positioned.
  9. What is the bulb type and wattage?
  10. The bulb type for the Mantis BS2 mini wall light is a CLII LED integrated 3W. A 3-watt LED bulb may produce anywhere between 240 to 320 lumens of illumination. Perfect for atmospheric lighting in a lounge or hallway.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Great range of products.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.
