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!

Having previously identified the Anglepoise® as his favourite design and a ‘minor miracle of balance’, Sir Kenneth Grange, responsible for some of Britain’s most iconic and successful designs, including the Kenwood Mixer, the Kodak Instamatic, the Intercity 125 train and the updated London taxi, becomes Design Director of Anglepoise.

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.

Compatible with both LED and energy-saving bulbs.
