Inventory // Size Matters (Thinking About) Paul Smith’s lamps for Anglopoise



It’s amazing what some colour can do to an age-old classic product. It you’re a fan of the iconic Anglepoise® task lamp, designed by Sir Kenneth Grange in the 1970s (based on the original three-spring designed in 1935 by automotive engineer George Carwardine) then Paul Smith’s magic touch will send you in a tizzy.

In recent years, the British fashion purveyour has lent his preppy charm to three editions of the Anglepoise® Type 75™: Anglepoise® + Paul Smith Edition One has cheery summary colours, Anglepoise® + Paul Smith Edition Two features more masculine tones with hints of autumn in its orange, dark-blue base, and Anglepoise® + Paul Smith Edition Three evokes Dutch painter Mondrian’s De stijl art style.

It’s hard to choose between the three for sure, and now, even harder with brilliant size options. The brand introduces the  Type 75™ Mini  and the Type 75™ Giant floor lamp in edition to the regular Type 75™ desk lamp. The minuscule version is perfect for a bedside companion for junior and the giant version makes a fine sculpture in itself. The well-designed spring system means illumination can be flexible and Paul Smith’s colouring exercise means the product livens up any space it is placed in.

Says Paul Smith, “Following the success of our previous collaborations with Anglepoise, I thought it would be nice to add two extremes: the mini and the maxi! The giant one is pretty extraordinary and in a big space looks sensational, whilst the mini is perfect for studies or for students working in smaller spaces.”

Anglepoise is available at Million Lighting.

The Type 75™ Mini and Type 75™ desk lamp are available in the three established Paul Smith and Anglepoise® Edition colours, while the Type 75™ Giant floor lamp comes in the colour scheme from the very first collaboration – Edition One
