When renowned Swiss furniture company, Vitra, asked if they could create a pop up display using a series of Anglepoise® lamps to enhance the furniture sets in their stylish Clerkenwell showroom, naturally we said yes.
Founded in 1950 as a family-owned company, today Vitra remains dedicated to harnessing the power of design to improve our surroundings. Countless homes, offices and public spaces are all the better for receiving the Vitra treatment.

The list of designers who’ve worked with Vitra - Charles & Ray Eames, Kostantin Grcic, Antionio Citterio and Zaha Hadid, to name but a few - reads like a roll call of the great and good in the world of design. By applying a diligent design process, combining the company’s engineering excellence with the creative genius of leading international designers, Vitra has led the way in creating exemplary interiors, furniture and accessories that are timeless, functional and ultimately inspiring. What better opportunity could there be to present our lamps in such good company?
Within the showroom, the lamps sit comfortably within both the Vitra workplace and living settings:
In the lounge space a Type75™ table lamp reflects the clean lines of this Suite Sofa, designed for Vitra by Antonio Cittero (2010)
Here's the Type75™ again, this time in an office set. Flexible shade, pivoting arms and perfect balance make this lamp ideally suited to a workplace solution.
Here, focused light within a workbay is provided by a Type1228™ desk lamp. It's double layer polycarbonate shade comes in a wide range of colours.
Of course, you could go and see for yourself.
