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.

Two thirds the size of the iconic Original 1227™ Desk Lamp, this mini version is diminutive but not diminished. It features the same Anglepoise® unique constant tension spring mechanism, traditional stepped base, chrome fittings and signature shade.

E12 bulb included.
