Design by Kenneth Grange, 2004.
The Type75 Task Lamp was launched in 2004, a redesign of the original 1970's Anglepoise. Combining classical looks, smooth lines, flowing movement and full adjustability from the Anglepoise® constant tension technology, this lamp is well-suited for a wide range of uses — from reading in an armchair to providing task lighting in the office or studio.
The Type75 Task Lamp is made with aluminum arms and shade, metal joints and stainless steel fittings. A cast iron weighted table base with aluminum cover provides extra stability. Equipped with an inline switch and 7 foot cord.
Bulbs: 1 X 60W E26 (medium base) incandescent lamp, ships with a 12W energy-saving CFL spiral lamp.
Designer: Kenneth Grange
Kenneth Grange was born in London, 1929, where he attended the Willesden School of Arts and Crafts. Grange served with the Royal Engineers where he began training as a technical draftsman. Originally a draftsman in an architect's office and briefly an exhibition designer, his career took off when Kodak asked him to design their Instamatic camera.

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
