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.
Designed by Sir Kenneth Grange, Type 75™ is inspired by a 1970’s version of the Anglepoise® Apex 90®, originally launched in the 1950’s. Grange reinterprets the modernist lines and no-frills functionality of its predecessor for new generations. Classic looks, flowing movement and full adjustability make Type 75™ a firm favourite with architects, designers and homemakers. This Mini version was created especially with small spaces in mind. As a scaled-down, more playful version of the Type 75™, it offers all the functionality of the larger lamp, presented in a more compact and colourful form.
Available in Brushed Aluminum, Slate Grey, Signal Red, Jet Black, Powder Blue, or Alpine White.
Also available with a desk clamp, a desk insert, or a wall mounting attachment.
Compatible with both LED and energy-saving bulbs.
