Three Stunning Interpretations
Paul Smith is Britain’s foremost designer. He is renowned for his creative aesthetic, which combines tradition and modernity. Reaffirming the values that Paul set down in 1970, ‘classic with a twist’ remains the guiding principle of the company.
Paul’s saying, that you can find inspiration in everything’, means that references are eclectic, coming from high art and everyday life. Each Paul Smith design is underpinned by a dry British sense of humour: quirky but not frivolous, eccentric but not silly. Happily positioned between high fashion and formalwear, while taking reference from both, Paul Smith has always been proud to stand apart.
Anglepoise + Paul Smith is a stunning interpretation of the Anglepoise Type 75™ range, combining the unmistakable form and function of an Anglepoise with the quintessential style of Britain’s foremost designer. Created for Anglepoise by leading British industrial product designer, Sir Kenneth Grange, the timeless Type 75™ design provides the perfect canvas for a designer known for his mastery of colour.
The Type 75™ Mini and Type 75™ desk lamp are available in the six established Paul Smith and Anglepoise Edition colours. Edition One’s colours are evocative of the summer, while Edition Two uses the deep, rich hues of autumn. Edition Three takes a different approach by using the visual vocabulary of Dutch painter Mondrian’s De Stijl style of art. Inspired by his collaboration with Land Rover, Edition Four celebrates the quintessential colours of the British countryside. The most recent Editions, Five and Six were designed to accompany one another, both boasting Paul Smiths famous artist stripe.
