We are delighted to unveil our fifth collaboration with renowned designer, Paul Smith. The Anglepoise + Paul Smith Edition Five, available exclusively from anglepoise.com and paulsmith.com from November, comprises two desk lamps (Mini and Standard size) and a floor lamp and builds on Paul’s ‘classic with a twist’ design philosophy.
Where our previous Paul Smith collaborations have maximised on Paul’s mastery of colour, the Edition Five takes a different approach and features the Artist Stripe on a pared back, pure black version of the Type 75 Anglepoise, itself designed by Sir Kenneth Grange.
Adam Wade, Technical Director at Anglepoise: “By creating a design that is head-to-toe black – from screws and fittings through to our signature springs – we bring focus to the purity of Kenneth’s Type 75 design. For the first time the Paul Smith Artist Stripe features on an Anglepoise lamp and so we also get an instantly recognisable flourish befitting of Paul Smith’s name. The Anglepoise + Paul Smith Edition Five is elegant, fun and just a little bit eccentric; a future classic in the making.”
This new collection comes at a time when Anglepoise has stepped up its commitment to combating a world without fast homeware through the introduction of its Lifetime Guarantee. Anglepoise has introduced the guarantee on all its products used in a domestic setting to stem the flow of products destined for landfill and remind people that good design goes beyond aesthetics. The heirlooms of tomorrow should be repairable, reusable and, as a last resort, recyclable.
