Appearing to defy gravity, the Mantis BS2 is an elegant lamp that overhangs gracefully from the wall. Designed in 1951 by Bernard Schottlander, combining his passions of art and engineering to create this beautiful piece.

Masterfully crafted by lighting connoisseurs DCW Editions of Paris using aluminium spinning and chasing techniques, its distinct form takes inspiration from American sculptor Alexander Calders work based on hanging mobiles. Retaining its balance with a counterweight, it can move and tilt in multiple directions and the shade rotates 360 degrees. Both practical and stylish, this sophisticated piece offers a tasteful lighting solution with a striking aesthetic.

        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

        First class service.

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

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        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.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

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

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

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

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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.

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

        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.

        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.

        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!

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        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.
