About Our Designers

From the creation of our now iconic Original 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.
