Lighting Brand Anglepoise And Paul Smith Partner for Fifth Collaboration Collection 

Lighting brand Anglepoise unveils its fifth and latest collaboration with renowned designer, Paul Smith. The Anglepoise + Paul Smith Edition Five, available exclusively from anglepoise.com and paulsmith.com from  November, comprises two desk lamps (Mini and Standard size) and a floor lamp and builds on Paul’s ‘classic with  a twist’ design philosophy. 

Where previous Anglepoise + Paul Smith collaborations have maximised on Paul’s mastery of colour, the Edition  Five takes a different approach and features the Artist Stripe on a pared back, pure black version of the Type 75  Anglepoise, itself designed by Sir Kenneth Grange. 

Adam Wade, Technical Director at Anglepoise: “By creating a design that is head-to-toe black – from screws and  fittings through to our signature springs – we bring focus to the purity of Kenneth’s Type 75 design. For the first  time the Paul Smith Artist Stripe features on an Anglepoise lamp and so we also get an instantly recognisable  flourish befitting of Paul Smith’s name. The Anglepoise + Paul Smith Edition Five is elegant, fun and just a little bit  eccentric; a future classic in the making.”  

The Anglepoise + Paul Smith Edition Five collection comprises three different lights: a standard size Type 75 desk  lamp, a slightly smaller mini desk lamp as well as a floor lamp. All the new lamps will be available on anglepoise.com  and paulsmith.com from the beginning of November. 

This new collection comes at a time when Anglepoise has stepped up its commitment to combating a world without  fast homeware through the introduction of its Lifetime Guarantee. Anglepoise has introduced the guarantee on all  its products used in a domestic setting to stem the flow of products destined for landfill and remind people that  good design goes beyond aesthetics. The heirlooms of tomorrow should be repairable, reusable and, as a last  resort, recyclable.  

About Anglepoise 

In 1932, when vehicle suspension engineer George Cawardine invented a spring, crank and lever mechanism that could be  positioned with the lightest of touches yet maintain its position once released, a blueprint for the first Anglepoise task lamp was  born. The Anglepoise lamps have subsequently achieved iconic status and its engaging, anthropomorphic form is recognised  and admired all around the world. Over the years, the Anglepoise lamp has been developed under the careful watch of the Terry 

family, without ever losing sight of its primary function and unique, characteristic form. From the creation of the Original 1227™  lamp, to the development of extended collections by esteemed industrial product designer Sir Kenneth Grange, to recent  collaborations with renowned designers Paul Smith and Margaret Howell, incomparable British design remains at the heart of  this progressive, British brand. 

In 2020, Anglepoise introduced a lifetime guarantee available across its entire range. Anglepoise’s Guaranteed for Life is a  promise to service and maintain any lights brought by domestic customers and is a response to the current trend of products built  without longevity in mind and are destined for landfill.
