Anglepoise and Paul Smith Type 75 desk lamps

British lighting brand Anglepoise has collaborated with Paul Smith on a special-edition Type 75 desk lamp to produce the iconic desk lamp in a number of colour combinations traditionally associated with designer Paul Smith. The first Anglepoise lamp was designed in 1932 by automotive engineer George Carwardine, after he invented a new type of spring that maintained its position after being moved in any direction. The Type 75 is based on a 1970s version of an Anglepoise lamps from the 1950s.

Smith's previous collaborations with Anglepoise have all been exclusive colour editions, but this the first time he has played with the scale of the lamps. Previewed at Clerkenwell Design Week earlier this year, this latest collection includes small and oversized versions of the classic aluminium desk lamp.
