As if the iconic British Anglepoise® lamps could get any better…well they just have. Edition Two of the Type 75 Desk Lamp is the result of a continued collaboration with designer Paul Smith. Two British icons pairing up beautifully – DECO took a look.

With jewel-like colours and bold accents of orange, this is the more sophisticated counterpart of Edition One with its summery combination of cornflower, fuchsia and lime. Either way, this well-loved design classic takes on new life and Anglepoise® states:

It’s a rare thing to encounter a designer like Paul Smith who can inject modernity and new relevance into a classic design without in some way compromising the integrity of the original design.

Iconic British designer, renowned for his colour block style, said:

After the success of my first Anglepoise® lamp, I’m very happy to be working with them again on a fresh version. I hope everyone likes it!
