This lamp can bring an industrial charm to any space and bright up a kitchen, a living room, or even a kid’s bedroom. It is not only an attractive piece of design but highly functional.

The lamp was the brainchild of British designer George Carwardine, who at the time of the lamp’s invention was a car designer and a freelance design consultant specialising in vehicle suspension systems.

When working on suspensions, George created a mechanism that he felt could be applied to other fields, especially the task lamp. The joints and spring tension allowed the lamp to be moved into a wide range of positions. Demand for the Carwardine’s lamp grew so quickly that he swiftly entered into a licensing agreement with Herbert Terry and Sons on 22nd February 1934. The ground-breaking use of springs in the design has also since been used in computer display screens, stationary, and microphones. And in 1948 the BBC issued a rule that all rooms in their offices had to be lit by an Anglepoise.
