Type 75 Desk Lamp Paul Smith Edition 2

By Anglepoise


  • Description

    Once again Paul Smith has collaborated with Anglepoise® to create the Type 75™ Desk Lamp – Paul Smith – Edition Two, testament to this designer's remarkable deftness in instilling modernity and new life into a well-loved design classic. The lamps will be available from September, ready for the start of the festive season.If Edition One, with its sunny combination of cornflower, fuchsia and lime is evocative of summer, then Edition Two is its alter ego, evoking the deep, rich hues of autumn. Combined with deep slate and cool grey, the striking mix of sumptuous, jewel-like colours is smart, restrained, sophisticated. Add a bold accent of orange - that element of surprise so intrinsic to Paul Smith style – and the colours take on a new intensity.
    Seen in tandem, each Edition assumes a distinct and contrasting identity, helped, no doubt, by the anthropomorphic form of the lamps themselves: Edition One the more playful, perhaps more feminine of the two, Edition Two its stunning new counterpart.
    "After the success of my first Anglepoise® lamp, I'm very happy to be working with them again on a fresh version. I hope everyone likes it!" Paul explains.
    "It's a rare thing to encounter a designer like Paul Smith who can inject modernity and new relevance into a classic design without in some way compromising the integrity of the original design," Anglepoise® comments.
