It may be two thirds the size of our much-loved Original 1227™, but our Original 1227™ Mini desk lamp is a smaller version of this iconic 1930s design, featuring Anglepoise® unique constant tension spring mechanism, traditional stepped base, chrome fittings and signature shade.

Anglepoise® + Paul Smith is a stunning interpretation of the Anglepoise® Type 75™ range, combining the unmistakable form and function of an Anglepoise® with the quintessential style of Britain’s foremost designer. Created for Anglepoise® by leading British industrial product designer, Sir Kenneth Grange, the timeless Type 75™ design provides the perfect canvas for a designer known for his mastery of colour.
The Type 75™ Mini and Type 75™ desk lamp are available in the three established Paul Smith and Anglepoise® Edition colours, while the Type 75™ Giant floor lamp comes in the colour scheme from the very first collaboration - Edition One.
Edition Ones colours are evocative of the summer, while Edition Two uses the deep, rich hues of autumn. Edition Three takes a different approach by using the visual vocabulary of Dutch painter Mondrian’s De Stijl style of art.


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®.
