Iconic, quintessentially British brand Anglepoise produces an incomparable series of practical, energy-efficient task lamps, ideally suited for both domestic and commercial interiors. The lamps are characterized by a pioneering perfect balance mechanism developed in the 1930s and an engaging kinetic form.

The story began in 1931, when automotive engineer George Carwardine developed a theoretical concept for balancing weights using springs, cranks and levers. Using special springs with a 'constant tension' quality developed by family company Herbert Terry and Sons Ltd., Carwardine had chanced upon the means to create an articulated task lamp that could combine ultimate flexibility with perfect balance. A patent is filed and, in 1933, the first four-spring Anglepoise lamp is launched.

Shortly after the launch of its original task lamp, Anglepoise re-developed the lamp for the domestic market by creating a three-spring version in 1935. Since then the demand for Anglepoise task lamps has grown rapidly, with new releases including lamps for World War II bombers, lamps for the Navy, a giant version for the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre and more. Recent editions have included special collaborations with Paul Smith and Margaret Howell.
