In Conversation With: James Otter, a Wooden Surfboard Maker – 003

My second exploration with like-minded creatives is with James Otter from Otter Surfboards. I first came across James’ work in his book Do Make: The power of your own two hands. The introduction was enough to completely blow my mind.


In Conversation With: Sir Kenneth Grange, an industrial designer – 001

Here we are at start of my ‘In Conversation…’ series with Sir Kenneth Grange, an industrial designer in conversation - 001. Where I chat to the makers and doers who have inspired me over the years.


Meet the light that’s just your type

Our hearts skipped a beat when we saw this gorgeous extension featuring our Type 80 pendant lights in Rose Pink. They’re a perfect match for the blush pink velvet bar stools, and really pop against the deep navy paintwork.


By George, that’s a brilliant idea!

We’re big fans of George Bronwin’s exquisite stoneware and porcelain ceramics. Each piece is one of a kind, so when he contacted us last year to help light his new workshop in Somerset, we were happy to recommend a few originals of our own.


A Designers Dream

New York-based illustrator and graphic designer Rob Wilson has worked for a host of clients including Design Within Reach, Dell and the Wall Street Journal.


A Creative Collaborator

His letter speaks for itself, and as you can see, the Anglepoise is still giving him bright ideas. It just goes to show that our lamp really can be a lifelong companion – whatever you choose to create, make or read under its glow.


The lamps sparking special memories

If you have a vintage Anglepoise that’s a family heirloom, remember, we’re here to take care of it. Our Customer Support team are usually the ones to hear first hand how much a dear lamp means to people.


Lost & Found

Imagine seeing an old Anglepoise lamp on the street, heading for the bin. What would you do? Jeanne Duquenne, our Sales and Business Development Manager, found herself in this very situation not so long ago.


The Anglepoise Way (Introduction)

Hear about our ethos and core values from John Purnell, which provide the stablest of bases to build upon. These values are the intangibles that are inherent and fundamental about us as individuals, and they form the core of the culture of Anglepoise the business.
