Distinguished by its striking, graphic profile, available in a range of muted colourways, every detail has been carefully considered and precision-engineered to deliver streamlined ease of use and practicality.

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.
