Our best-selling Type 75™ desk lamp combines all the high quality fittings and features you have come to expect from an Anglepoise®, with elegant, classic looks, flowing movement and full adjustability.
As a scaled-down, more playful version of the Type 75™, it offers all the functionality of the larger lamp. Paired with a compact desk clamp, the lamp can fix to a wide range of horizontal surfaces, including desks and shelves. Sir Kenneth Grange's Type 75‚ Mini collection offers all the functionality of its larger sibling, but in a more compact form, making it a popular choice for smaller spaces. The desk and wall mounted lamps incorporate Anglepoise® constant tension spring technology for matchless flexibility and perfect balance.
Design Director of Anglepoise® since 2003, Sir Kenneth Grange began his illustrious career as a technical illustrator whilst in National Service. He subsequently made his reputation as an industrial product designer and in association with four partners founded Pentagram, now an international design practice with offices in USA, Germany and London. Grange’s remarkable work spans half a century and his user-centered, often quintessentially British designs have helped shape the parameters of everyday life for so many. Not only everyday household brands like Kenwood, Parker, Kodak - and of course Anglepoise® - have received the Kenneth Grange treatment but also the InterCity 125 train, the regional Royal Mail postbox and the latest London BlackTaxi.
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®.
