Type1228 Table LampPrice: $225.00
Design by Kenneth Grange, 2008.
The Type1228 Table Lamp was originally launched in 2008 with a polycarbonate green shade and was designed to mimic a traditional banker's light. The two layer polycarbonate shade is colored on the outside and white on the inside. This technique produces a highly efficient working light while giving the shade a vibrant, slightly iridescent effect when illuminated. The shade of the Type1228 Table Lamp can be rotated vertically so that it can be used as an uplight.
Made of aluminum arms and metal joints with a double-layered polycarbonate shade. Constructed with Anglepoise® constant tension spring technology, stainless steel bridle and fittings, and a cast iron base with aluminum cover for stability. Available in silver body. Select Green, Orange, Gray, White or Blue lamp shade.

Poorly made and designed.

Although this may be a british design, the lamp is quite shoddy in construction - aside from the nicely weighted cast iron base. The lamp socket and cord are of the very cheapest plastic; the cord at the lamp is too long and not adjustable. The plastic socket and shade mean that a bulb of less than 15W must be used. Don't expect to use an efficient and effective LED bulb - the lamp springs are too weak to allow anything but an incandescent or lightweight CFL bulb. Very disappointing.

For over 70 years, Anglepoise has created table lamps and table lights that are now British design classics. What started as a simple idea of using springs, cranks and levers to balance weight, created one of the most esteemed lamp collections. George Carwardine's blueprint of Anglepoise was patented in 1934 and production began with the help of Herbert Terry and Sons Ltd., the manufacturer that purchased the rights to Anglepoise. Since that time, Anglepoise has redefined all a table lamp has been and can be, moving from the four spring to the three spring. Anglepoise table lamps remain true to George Carwardine original design whilst incorporating modern features, such as energy saving bulbs. Anglepoise energy saving lamps are designed to replicate the intensity of light that is demanded by professionals, such as graphic artists and interior designers.View other products from Anglepoise
