Songs have been written about it, it has played a big role in films and novels, and it has illuminated the maps by which British bombers navigated during the Second World War. We are, of course, talking about none other than the original Anglepoise lamp.
When George Carwardine was working on a vehicle suspension system for cars in 1930s England, it was clear to him that he had invented a system that could revolutionise much more than just the chassis. His iconic 1227 Anglepoise was launched in 1935, and the classic architect lamp has gone on to revolutionise lighting to such a degree that it is still being copied to this day. That said, there is only one original, and the Anglepoise Original 1227 is still unparalleled in design, quality, and significance.
