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.

The Type 80™ desk lamp has a striking, graphic profile and features an attractive ‘halo’ light-escape in the shade. Every detail has been carefully considered and precision engineered to deliver streamlined style and ease of use, including sprung joint mechanisms and cables that are discreetly routed through the arms.
