This compact, directional wall light is easy to mount, easy to use (the die-cast aluminium sconce has an integrated switch) and with its glossy white bone china shade that turns translucent when the light is on, it looks beautiful too.
Our Anglepoise® Ceramic collection exudes simplicity and elegance. The glossy smoothness of the bone china shades is complemented by smart, chrome plated fittings, while the grey fabric cables provide subtle textural contrast.
The white, gloss-finished shades turn translucent when the light source is switched on and radiate soft, ambient light around the room. Atmospheric they may be, but we have not sacrificed functionality; the shades on both the table lamp and wall light are flexible so can be adjusted to cast light precisely where it is needed.
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.
