Anglepoise lamps are a true design classic, looking as fresh today as they did when they were first created in 1934 using a design inspired by automotive engineering.
Inspired by Automobiles
The forwardthinking George Carwardine used his inspiration from the world of motoring to create a revolutionary new lamp that combined spring technology with perfect balance and incredible flexibility. The result was a world first: an articulated desk and table lamp that offered complete stability along with impeccable style credentials.
The lamp is immediately recognisable for its classic, timeless design, and the Anglepoise lamp is one of the key pieces in the interior design hall of fame. Today you can find the perfect Anglepoise lamp in a variety of colours and finishes, with ceiling pendant varieties alongside the deskbased versions. Large floor versions are also popular, and they still offer the same stability, flexibility and style, making them perfect for living spaces which are used in a variety of ways.

The metal construction is robust and hardwearing so that this piece of design will play a leading role in your interior for years to come. The perfect thing about design classics such as the Anglepoise lamp is that they do not date in the same way as 'fast fashion' pieces, and you will get years of joy and utility from this beautiful piece.
