Anglepoise made its name back in the 1930s, when an automotive designer, George Carwardine, invented the Anglepoise desk lamp. This iconic lamp, which used a system of springs, cranks and levers for adjustment, is still sold today. In fact, the original 1227 design of 1935 is to be found among our range in the form of desk lamps, pendants and wall lamps. We also sell modern Type 75 lights, which are inspired by a 1973 desk lamp from the same maker. If you’re a fan of good design or just admire stylish, functional lighting, Anglepoise is for you.
