As well as receiving accolades for our distinctive range of table lights, including the recent inclusion of our 1227 model in the ten British Design Classics Royal Mail stamp collection, Anglepoise also works alongside others to help create the right ambience for celebrations of important figures and designers' work.
For example, in 2008, our Type75 table light featured heavily in an exhibition about Sir Basil Spence. This event sought to focus the attention of the viewer on his works and writings and in order to achieve this, the event organisers chose our unique range of table lights to employ the right look and level of light for the entire show.
We also work hard to develop our range of home lamps into bigger design pieces such as the Anglepoise Chandelier in Holland. Created to extend the public's collective image of our Type1228 design and to extend our capabilities as a creator of sound design, this beautiful piece of lighting employed a table light that was originally designed by Kenneth Grange our Design Director.
Now in its seventy-fifth year, the original George Carwardine 1227 table light design was recreated as a floor standing lamps five years ago to celebrate its seventieth birthday. Three times the size of the first of our table lights, the Giant Anglepoise model has a reach of 70cm from the top of the 91cm pole and has a range of movement not usually seen in conventional floor lamps. The Giant Anglepoise model is perfect for use in combination with existing office lights or as a standalone lighting solution.
