Inspired by Paul Smith's bespoke Land Rover Defender, the fourth edition desk lamp embodies a unique 27-colour palette, referencing the many colour schemes that the Defender has sported over the years. In this particular edition, British countryside colours dominate: deep earthy burgundy, leaden grey, sky blue, dappled green and rich clay, with a dash of fluorescent yellow adding an element of surprise. Embodying simplicity, functionality and authenticity, the light's well-known design is ideal for positioning upon a desk, sideboard or side table; featuring an innovative spring mechanism that can cater the light to the users desired position.
Originally a draughtsman in an architect’s office and briefly an exhibition designer, Sir Kenneth Grange's career took off when Kodak asked him to design their Instamatic camera. Many of his designs have become familiar items, such as his food mixers for Kenwood, razors for Wilkinson Sword, pens for Parker and British Rail’s InterCity 125.
Sir Kenneth Grange became design director at the iconic British designer lighting brand Anglepoise in 2003. His first Anglepoise lamp was the Type 3™ desk lamp, which was launched in 2003. Grange has since gone on to design the Anglepoise Type 75 and Type 1228 collections.
