I love my Type 75 and Mini Studio lamp. I love how smooth the spring mechanism makes them and how their timeless elegance means that they fit in every corner of my flat like a glove.
But suddenly I find myself wanting nothing more than the new Giant Original 1227™. I'm not entirely sure where it would sit in my living room because it is so large, but it is just majestic. The Giant was initially commissioned for the Roald Dahl Museum, and I can see why. It has a whimsical, story telling feel to it.
I have developed somewhat of an obsession with Anglepoise lamps. Sitting atop our living room sideboard is a black Type 75. I could easily collect several more, especially the Type 75 in white for the bedroom. Amongst more of my Scandivanian designed items, I love that Anglepoise is a British brand. It's story goes all the way back to 1855 with the Terry family, manufacturers of springs, and by the 1930's car design George Carwardine develops a perfect balanced lamp using the Terry family springs.
