Why is it Special?
Anglelpoise has been making classic lamps in England since the 1930s. They may look familiar to you, perhaps because they star in many James Bond films (including the new Spectre), and the Queen of England has one on her desk. Also Picasso owned one. So did the lead character in Salman Rushdie's novel Midnights Children. And they are featured on a UK stamp. It's like owning a piece of design history!
Characterized by a pioneering perfect balance mechanism (they stay put with every adjustment) and an engaging kinetic form. The iconic, quintessentially British brand Anglepoise® produces an incomparable series of practical, energy-efficient task lamps, ideally suited for both domestic and commercial interiors.
The Original 1227™ lamp is considered a British design classic. Heritage inspired colours, woven cable and authentic brass details create a new aesthetic for this iconic Anglepoise® design. With constant tension springs and flexible shade, the stylish table lamp offers unrivalled flexibility, smooth movement and perfect balance.
This brass version is available in deep slate, elephant grey and dusty blue. Also available with a desk mount, a wall mount, and in wall and pendant versions.
Compatible with both LED and energy-saving bulbs.
