Original 1227 Desk Lamp


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.
