Now an iconic Anglepoise design, the Original 1227™ lamp series was designed by automotive engineer George Carwardine after he discovered a formula for a new kind of spring that allowed ultimate flexibility with perfect stability. With its beautiful, solid brass components, woven fabric cable and chic, high-gloss color palette, this premium five-piece brass collection is a sophisticated reinterpretation of the classic Original 1227™ design. A perfect blend of form and function, the pendants make a striking feature while the wall and desk lamps can be re-positioned with the slightest touch and come with adjustable shades that focus the light precisely where it's needed.
