Anglepoise is an English lighting brand known especially for its durable and recognisable architect lamps. The story of Anglepoise dates back to 1932, when automotive engineer George Carwardine developed an innovative constant tension spring mechanism, which allows a lamp to be positioned with the lightest of touch – originally developed for the Anglepoise 1227 luminaire, the spring mechanism is today used in a range of Anglepoise lamps.
As for the production of the lamps, Carwardine collaborated with springmakers Herbert Terry & Sons, who participated in developing the designs even further. Carwardine’s background as an engineer is reflected in the Anglepoise range in precise technical details and long-lasting quality, and the classic elements of the luminaires are complemented by modern technology and collaborations with top designers of today. All Anglepoise lamps come with a lifetime warranty.
