Everyone know what an Anglepoise lamp looks like – it’s been around since 1932, becoming a design classic along the way. Although whether the Anglepoise 50 will get that sort of acclaim remains to be seen.
It’s designed by Anthony Dickens, with the company hoping this bold new look will appeal to a younger market. The Anglepoise 50 is based on the original, but with the angle frozen at 50 degrees (hence the name), almost like a fossil if you like. Why 50 degrees? The perfect angle for working apparently.
It’s available in a range of colours, including the red and orange above. You can pre-order one now from the Anglepoise site for £39.50.
And thanks to Simon for the tip off.
