Spring Light

This accessible and comprehensive book shines a light on the
design history of the famous Anglepoise lamp. Starting with the
beginnings of the company with George Carwardine, the designer
behind the lamp, the book takes you through an illuminating
journey of the development and influence of this British icon.
In 1932, vehicle suspension engineer George Carwardine designed
the spring, crank and lever mechanism that became the blueprint
for the first Anglepoise lamp. Enchanting the world with its
light-to-the-touch and anthropomorphic design, the unique and
characterful form has adorned the worktables of everyone, from
writers to engineers, from the Second World War through to the
21st century. Cozy as it is utilitarian, the intimately focused
pool of light the Anglepoise creates around an individual's work
is as poetic as it is practical. Today, the lamp is a sure sign
of quality and has been hailed as a hallmark of British design.
