Designed by Sir Kenneth Grange, Type 75 Collection is inspired by a 1970’s version of the Anglepoise Apex 90. The Apex 90 was originally launched in the 1950’s. Grange took upon himself the task of reinterpreting the modernist lines and no-frills functionality of its predecessor for the new generation of the Type 75 Collection.
Sir Kenneth Grange had previously identified the Anglepoise Company as his favorite design company. He called it a “minor miracle of balance.” Sir Kenneth Grange became Design Director of the Anglepoise Company in 2003.
Sir Kenneth Grange has been described as "the classically styled godfather of British modernism, renowned for designing some of the most iconic industrial products of the past 50 years," by Alyn Griffiths and Sam Rogers for Wallpaper.com.
The Anglepoise Type 1228 introduces a vibrant pop of color into any interior space. It is attractive, flexible and the shade can be rotated to create a highly efficient work light. It can also be tilted away to disperse a warm, ambient glow around the room giving it a warm, welcoming feel. The Anglepoise Type 1228 Lamp has a delicate wall bracket mechanism with a broader back plate for enhanced stability. This adds options for hard wiring the lamp or a trailing cable to the wall socket.
The Anglepoise Type 1228 Lamp with Wall Bracket offers all the functionality of the traditional Anglepoise Type 1228 Collection, and has a more modern aesthetic and excellent adaptability.
The Anglepoise Type 1228 Lamp with Wall Bracket features the signature Anglepoise Constant Tension Spring Technology. It features a distinctive, hemispherical, twin layered shade. This collection includes an easily accessible switch on the top of the shade. It is available in three colors: granite grey, ocean blue, and ice white.
