Decorating Dictionary: Anglepoise

Anglepoise: a balanced-arm lamp designed in 1932 by British designer George Carwardine. Carwardine, a design consultant specialising in vehicle suspension systems, saw an alternative use for springs and levers and created a mechanism with task lamps in mind. Carwardine teamed up with the Terry Spring Company to refine the Anglepoise lamp for the domestic market. Today Anglepoise is seen as a multi-product iconic British brand.
