Sir Kenneth Grange
Having previously identified the Anglepoise® as his favourite design and a ‘minor miracle of balance’, Sir Kenneth Grange, responsible for some of Britain’s most iconic and successful designs, including the Kenwood Mixer, the Kodak Instamatic, the Intercity 125 train and the updated London taxi, is Design Director of Anglepoise®.
In business for over 40 years, Paul Smith has established himself as the pre-eminent British designer. Paul Smith has an ability to anticipate, and even spark off trends not only fashion but in the wider context of popular culture. He manages to transmit a genuine sense of humour and mischief mixed with his love of tradition and the classics.
About our designers
From the creation of our now iconic Orignal 1227™ lamp, the brainchild of British automotive engineer, George Carwardine ... to the development of extended collections by esteemed industrial product designer, Sir Kenneth Grange ... to our most recent venture, a collaboration with Britain's foremost designer, Paul Smith, incomparable British design is the heart and soul of our company.
Not so surprising then that examples of our lamps can be found in homes and offices, restaurants, bars and hotels - and even in museums - all around the world; nor that the Royal Mail should celebrate our Original 1227™ design alongside such fine British Design Classics as the Mini, Penguin books and the Routemaster Bus.
