British brand Anglepoise traces back its origins to 1932, when automotive engineer, George Carwardine changed table lighting forever with the creation of a ground-breaking spring and pivoting arm system. His invention would lead to the development of the brand’s constant spring technology. In 1935, Anglepoise introduced the Original 1227™ lamp, which became one of the most iconic designs in the world. Over the years, the company has launched various versions of the beloved anthropomorphic lamp. New versions include mini and super-sized lamps as well as outdoor-friendly versions. With quintessential British design at the heart of the company, Anglepoise develops new designs in a collaboration with renowned designers like Sir Kenneth Grange, Paul Smith, and Margaret Howell.
