Angelpoise Lampe von Herbert Terry & Sons

The Anglepoise desk lamp is a cult classic and iconic design from the British lighting manufacturer, Anglepoise. It has a triple-arm jointed design and became a revolutionary piece of furniture in British homes and offices throughout the twentieth century.

Designed by Herbert Terry & Sons, the Anglepoise lamp is a classic of British industrial design history. The lamp was first introduced in 1932 and is characterized by its unique spring mechanism, which allows the lamp head to be held in any position without slipping or sinking.

The idea for the lamp originated when the chief engineer of Terry & Sons, George Carwardine, tried to develop a spring mechanism that would mimic the movements of a human arm. After years of research and development, the Anglepoise lamp was born.

The desk lamp was a huge success and quickly became a standard in factories, workshops, and offices around the world. It has been developed and improved over the years and is still a popular design object found in many homes and offices today.

The Anglepoise lamp is a remarkable object not only because of its functionality and aesthetics but also because of its significance in design history. It embodies the spirit of British industrial design of the 1930s and has left an unforgettable impression on the world of design.
