Margaret Howell has launched two additional exclusive colours for the Anglepoise Type 75 desk lamp. The new colours chosen for the collection – Saxon Blue and Seagrass – compliment the existing Yellow Ochre lamp.

“I feel I’ve lived with Anglepoise most of my life – school homework under the light of an original black square based Anglepoise, and later acquiring various coloured styles designed in the 1960s and 70s. One favourite, rescued from a skip, is a Yellow Apex 90, later to inform the choice of Yellow Ochre for the re-modelled Type 75 lamp.  Now, collaborating with Anglepoise we have added Saxon Blue and Seagrass to Yellow Ochre to make an exclusive colour range for the Type 75. We chose colours that we felt would act as accent colour and sit well in both a domestic and working interior.”

The Type 75, designed in 2004 by British industrial product designer Sir Kenneth Grange, reinterprets the original 1930s Anglepoise design. Its clean lines combine with the perfect balance and range of movement made possible by the unique spring mechanism of an Anglepoise lamp.

All three colours are available in our shops and online.
