You probably all know this classic lamp...
The Anglepoise lamp is a balanced-arm lamp designed in 1932 by British designer George Carwardine.
Carwardine was a car designer and was, at the time he invented the Anglepoise lamp, a freelance design consultant specialising in vehicle suspension systems. While developing new concepts for vehicle suspensions, he created a mechanism which he recognised had applications in other fields. He particularly saw its benefits for a task lamp. Despite many claims to the contrary, his concept had nothing whatsoever to do with mimicking the actions of the human arm. The joints and spring tension allow the lamp to be moved into a wide range of positions which it will maintain without being clamped.
Small, but perfectly poised, this miniature articulated lamp puts light just where you need it. 13cm high and with a powerful LED bulb this battery-powered lamp comes complete with a miniature on-off switch, so it’s ideal for reading, working or anything where you need a little extra light – from a extra special little light.
