Produced in collaboration with the National Trust, which cares for over 500 conservation sites including the peaks of Snowdonia and the Lake District, this version of the Original 1227 Mini Table Lamp.
Beautifully constructed from enduring steel and finished with warm natural colours, this compelling collaboration will support restoration projects at the Homewood, an early 20th-century villa in Surrey, gifted to the National Trust in 1999.
The English automotive engineer George Carwardine designed the "Anglepoise", a desk lamp, around 1930 and had its innovative construction patented in 1932. The shade is fastened to a long arm, which is jointed in two places. This construction not only makes the lampshade adjustable but also enables users to position the entire lamp in different ways, depending on what source of light is needed. The equilibrium of forces is achieved in all positions to which the lamp can be adjusted by springs, which function on the principle of the muscles in the human arm.
