Angleploise Type 75 Mini
Created by Sir Kenneth Grange for Anglepoise®, the iconic Type 75™ desk lamp design has been reinterpreted by Paul Smith, the accomplished designer known for his mastery of colour. Providing a patchwork of playful summer colours combined with the unmistakable Type 75 form, the Paul Smith Edition One desk lamp is a stunning addition to the Anglepoise® Type 75™ lighting range and, archetypal of Britain’s foremost designer.
Design Director of Anglepoise since 2003, Sir Kenneth Grange began his illustrious career as a technical illustrator whilst in National Service. He subsequently made his reputation as an industrial product designer and in association with four partners founded Pentagram, now an international design practice with offices in USA, Germany and London. Grange’s remarkable work spans half a century and his user-centered, often quintessentially British designs have helped shape the parameters of everyday life for so many. Not only everyday household brands like Kenwood, Parker, Kodak – and of course Anglepoise – have received the Kenneth Grange treatment but also the InterCity 125 train, the regional Royal Mail postbox and the latest London BlackTaxi. “He’s the classically styled godfather of British modernism, renowned for designing some of the most iconic industrial products of the past 50 years.” – Alyn Griffiths and Sam Rogers for Wallpaper.com on Sir Kenneth Grange winning a 2016 London Design Medal.
