George Carwardine

George Carwardine (1887–1947) was an English engineer who began his career in the automotive industry and, through many twists and turns, ended up as a lighting designer. His breakthrough invention was a desk lamp named Anglepoise, which was based on an innovative four-spring tension mechanism. Carwardine’s business grew quickly from a small-scale backyard workshop into an international lighting company, Anglepoise. During his career, Carwardine developed many variations of his tension spring lamps – the best known is still his first design, the Original 1227, which was released in 1932.
