Description

The archetypal Anglepoise model, the 1227 introduced the constant-spring mechanism designed by engineer George Carwardine. First intended for automobiles, George's tinkering with the 4-spring concept in his garden studio eventually yielded what because the iconic lamp prototype. With patent in hand in 1934, he debuted the first Anglepoise lamp at the British Industries Fair. In recent decades, enthusiasts could find only scarce vintage models. Now for the company's 75th anniversary, the Original 1227 with the identifiable square, stepped base makes its comeback for a new generation of fans.

Anglepoise

Here’s the unlikely tale of how an iconic British design literally "sprung" from an amateur inventor’s workshop. More than 70 years ago, automotive engineer George Carwardine, tinkering with constant-tension metal springs developed by the French firm Terry’s, found they could be moved in any direction but then “stayed put.” He didn’t find an application for cars but envisioned a task lamp based on the mechanics of the human arm. Notably, he added a shade to focus the light which meant that it used less electricity than usual at the time. 

With patent in hand in 1934, George debuted the first Anglepoise at the British Industries Fair. Since then, his original model 1227 and succeeding variations have proved timeless to generations of students, artists and professionals. Anglepoise lamps were produced for World War II bombers, celebrated in a Royal Mail stamp and have inspired tributes from musicians, artists and writers. With new energy-saving strides, the Anglepoise remains true to its defining minimalist design and efficiency.
