Anglepoise’s origins in the accidental: the springs that allow it to be moved and fixed in any direction were designed by George Carwardine for car suspension systems. He licensed the design to the Terry Spring Company, the springs were used to make different versions of the Anglepoise lamp, such as the iconic Type 1227 (the second version), and the Type 75 (designed by Sir Kenneth Grange). Throughout recent history Anglepoise has established itself in the lives of the great and everyday alike—from a recovered World War II bomber, to Roald Dahl, to a postage stamp. With a perfectly balancing mechanism, an engaging kinetic form, Anglepoise remains the iconic, quintessentially British brand that still continues to produce an incomparable series of practical, energy-efficient task lamps, ideally suited for both domestic and commercial interiors.
