The wall light features a discrete switch located on the back plate and has a flexible shade, so the light can be focused just where it’s needed. With its beautiful, solid brass components, woven fabric cable and chic, high gloss colour palette, this premium five-piece collection is a sophisticated reinterpretation of our classic Original 1227™ design. A perfect blend of form and function, the Pendant and Maxi Pendant make a striking feature, while the Wall Light, Wall Mounted and Desk Lamps can be re-positioned with the slightest touch and come with adjustable shades that focus the light precisely where it’s needed.


George Carwardine

By 1932 Carwardine was ready to unveil his remarkable invention - a 4-spring lamp, combining unprecedented freedom of movement and perfect balance due to its patented constant spring mechanism. And soon demand for the lamp far outstripped Carwardine’s small-scale supply. So in 1934 Carwardine licensed the design to world-class spring maker, Herbert Terry & Sons, who already supplied the springs for his lamps. Not long after, the Anglepoise® name was registered and the 4-spring ‘Model 1208™’ went into volume production.

Carwardine maintained his association with Terry’s for the remainder of his life. He developed numerous variations on the original Anglepoise® design, including lamps for hospital operating theatres, and for navigator tables in military aircraft. But it’s the enduring Original 1227™ model that remains the archetypal Anglepoise® lamp, and with it, an iconic British design.


In 1932 automotive engineer George Carwardine develops a formula for a new type of spring. He discovers that pivoting arms supported by a sequence of these springs can be repositioned with the lightest touch yet will remain perfectly in place once released. Carwardine has just created the blueprint for an Anglepoise®.
