DCW Editions

The DCW editions combines a number of classic designs from the early part of the 20th century. These include Lampe Gras and Mantis

Lampe Gras is a series of lamps designed by Bernard-Albin Gras in 1921, for use in offices and in industrial environments. The Lampe Gras was astounding in its simple, robust and yet very ergonomic design. There are neither screws nor welded joints in the basic form. The functional aesthetic of the lamps and especially the design of details such as those of the articulated brackets, supports and bases were truly original and far ahead of their time.

Mantis is the reproduction of a a collection of lamps designed in England in the 1950s by Bernhard Schottlander. Both an artist and engineer, his clever system of counter-weights combined with a series of strong, flexible and beautifully fine metal arms create an eternal play between balance and imbalance
