Type 75 Desk Lamp: Margaret Howell Edition
Few designers can claim a more authentic British ethos in aesthetic, craftsmanship and culture than Margaret Howell, whose men's and womenswear strikes a timeless modernity. After applying her mark to Brit legacy brand, Ercol, Margaret teamed up with another heritage house (and, like Ercol, A+R fave), Anglepoise, a lighting resource that everyone in the UK favors—including the Queen.
"I've lived with Anglepoise most of my life," Margaret recalls, "school homework under the light of an original black square-based Anglepoise, and later acquiring various colored styles designed in the 1960s and 1970s." Among her treasured Anglepoise lamps is one she rescued from a dumpster, Yellow Apex 90 that would inform the Ochre shade in her namesake capsule collection of Anglepoise's Type 75 lamp.
Saxon Blue and Seagrass round out the options, harkening to the ceramics and sweaters found in one of her serene London shops.
