Characterized by a pioneering perfect balance mechanism invented in the 1930s and an engaging kinetic form, Anglepoise produces the ultimate in flexible and functional decorative lighting.
The design integrity remains the heart of this quintessentially British brand: From the creation of their iconic Original 1227™ desk lamp and the introduction of Sir Kenneth Grange designed Type Collections to their recent collaborations with Paul Smith and Margaret Howell.
Not so surprising then that designs of the brand can be found in homes and offices, restaurants, bars and hotels, and on display in museums worldwide. Nor that the Royal Mail should celebrate the Original 1227™ design alongside such fine British Design Classics as the Mini, Penguin books and the Routemaster Bus.
The Anglepoise Desk Lamp
The Type 75 desk lamp is our best-selling Anglepoise design – and the whole collection is a bestseller at Anglepoise as well.
Designed by Sir Kenneth Grange in 2004, Type 75 is inspired by a 1970's version of the Anglepoise Apex 90, originally launched in the 1950s. Grange reinterprets the modernist lines and no-frills functionality of its predecessor for new generations. You will find that the Anglepoise Type 75 lamp makes the perfect reading light. It combines high-quality fittings and features with elegant, classic looks, flowing movement and full adjustability.
In 2011, Grange designed the Type 75 Mini as a down-scaled and more playful version of the best-selling Type 75 design.
In June 2019, Anglepoise introduced a renewed collaboration with designer Margaret Howell by introducing an innovative new Sienna Edition into the best-selling Type 75 collection. The rich, clay colour adds a new dimension to the Margaret Howell colour palette and perfectly complements the existing colours.
The Original 1227™ Mini is also a very popular Anglepoise desk lamp. This mini version is scaled down two-thirds of the original size of the Model 1227 desk lamp. The Mini Collection is a playful, more versatile and contemporary version of Anglepoise’s most iconic and best-loved 1930s Anglepoise design.
