When automotive engineer, George Carwardine chanced upon a formula for a new kind of spring, he had created the blueprint for a groundbreaking articulated task lamp that could combine ultimate flexibility with perfect stability. Two years later the Original 1227™ desk lamp was born.
Today, this highly adaptable and engagingly anthropomorphic light, is a point of pride of Carwardine's native Britain. It has been referred to as a minor miracle of balance.
The Anglepoise lamp is in Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection.
