Mid Century Modern "Praying Mantis" Floor Lamp in Ebonized Walnut by Jean Rispal

12,475.00

This iconic and graphic praying mantis floor Lamp was realized by the esteemed French designer Jean Rispal circa 1950. Inspired by the dynamic form of the insect from which the piece owes its name, it features an arched body that comes to a fine point with an amorphic nodule towards its apex, all realized in ebonized walnut. The lamp rests on three curved and tapered legs. An orbital channelled lantern style shade hangs the pinnacle of the body. With its inimitable form and bold modernist lines, this piece is as versatile as it is stunning, blending perfectly with any style of interior from classic Mid-Century Modern to contemporary. Not only is this a perfectly functional table lamp, it is also a sculptural objet d'art, promising to beautify any interior that it graces. It has been newly rewired to American standards and restored to mint condition.
