Anglepoise lamps were invented in 1932 by George Carwardine, automotive engineer, developing a formula for a new type of metal spring! He discovers that rotating arms supported by a sequence of these steel springs can be repositioned with the lightest contact, but that they will remain perfectly balanced pendant in place once released. Carwardine just created the design of an Anglepoise balanced-arm lamp, a new evergreen concept design benchmark for task lights, work lamps, desk lamps and table lamps. That concept has lasted and been renewed incorporating essential modern features for over 80 years, under the careful watch of the founding Terry family, without ever losing sight of its primary function, and unique, characterful form.
