Why is it Special?
Anglelpoise has been making classic lamps in England since the 1930s. They may look familiar to you, perhaps because they star in many James Bond films (including the new Spectre), and the Queen of England has one on her desk. Also Picasso owned one. So did the lead character in Salman Rushdie's novel Midnights Children. And they are featured on a UK stamp. It's like owning a piece of design history!
Characterized by a pioneering perfect balance mechanism (they stay put with every adjustment) and an engaging kinetic form. The iconic, quintessentially British brand Anglepoise® produces an incomparable series of practical, energy-efficient task lamps, ideally suited for both domestic and commercial interiors.
Launched in 1934 and generally considered the archetypal Anglepoise®, the Original 1227™ pioneered their unique constant spring technology to deliver ultimate flexibility and perfect balance. Today this timeless, classic design enjoys iconic design status.
This brass version is available in jet black, ivory cream, signal red and bright chrome.
Compatible with both LED and energy-saving bulbs.
