Paul Smith’s Take On The Anglepoise Is A Brilliant Riot Of Colour

When Paul Smith got his hands on the design icon that is the Anglepoise Type75 desk lamp, the result was always going to be striking — and spattered with clashing colours, it certainly is. The special edition of the lamp uses Smith’s trademark discordant colour choices to pick out each element of the lamp’s mechanical workings in a different hue.

The grey, cast-iron base is complemented by blue, khaki and yellow stays, a pink neck and a cream lamp head.

Originally designed back in 1932 by automotive engineer George Carwardine, the Anglepoise has rightly become a design icon, and we reckon this latest offering does it justice. It was unveiled during this week’s Clerkenwell Design Week in London, and will be available to pre-order online from mid August — then go on sale in Paul Smith stores from September.
