The 1227 was originally designed in 1935. George Carwardine, working in the automotive industry, was tinkering in his shop and developed a spring which could be moved easily in every direction yet also remain rigid when held in position. This new spring was the basis for the 1227. The shade was developed to concentrate the beam of light on the task at hand and therefore could use a lesser wattage lamp.

The 1227 was originally designed in 1935. George Carwardine, working in the automotive industry, was tinkering in his shop and developed a spring which could be moved easily in every direction yet also remain rigid when held in position. This new spring was the basis for the 1227. The shade was developed to concentrate the beam of light on the task at hand and therefore could use a lesser wattage lamp. Soon it was realized that the 1227 would work just as well for a reading lamp as it did for factory task lighting. Reissued to celebrate it 75th Anniversary. The Original 1227 is made with aluminum arms and a heavily weighted base for extra stability.

Characterized by a pioneering perfect balance mechanism and an engaging kinetic form developed over 70 years ago, Anglepoise produces an incomparable series of practical, energy-efficient task lamps, ideally suited for both residential and commercial interiors. Since the very beginning, Anglepoise has redefined all a table lamp has been and can be, moving from the four spring to the three spring. Over the years, Anglepoise remains an iconic, quintessentially British brand.

Original 1227 Task Light by Anglepoise is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from made where? No where on the box, or the lamp itself, is the country where the item is manufactured identified. the lamp looks and feels like a reproduction. Still, it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lamp! I had an Anglepoise Type75 and recently bought an Original 1227 (both in black). In terms of functionality, both work similarly and equally well. T75 has a minimal and modern feel, but the Original has the classic, retro touch that I love. The paint on the Original is more shiny. You won't go wrong with either. The price tag is a bit high but I think it's worth it. Delivery is fast from YLighting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Anglepoise 1227 task light was a disappointment and I returned it. I was really looking forward to getting my Anglepoise lamp but was very disappointed when I actually started using it. The light is unbalanced and difficult to adjust. The head flies up at the slightest provocation so that it is not really adjustable. You just have to carefully move the arm around until it's balanced just right and the light shines down. Otherwise, the light flies up and shines on the wall. Furthermore, at this price, I was expecting a little tank of a light. Not at all. It is cheaply made in China and not significantly different from the version you can purchase at elsewhere. Very disappointing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Great design. I purchased this lamp in red for task lighting in my office. It is a great design and provides excellent lighting. The lamp arrived promptly in perfect condition. I only wished the assembly instructions would specify that you need to screw in the light bulb before the lamp will remain in a desired position. It took me a few minutes to figure this out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very pleased with this light. This 1227 Task Light is very well made, and absolutely true to the original design. The fit and finish of all the parts is excellent, and assembling it was much simpler than I'd expected. I can't find anything wrong with it. It's a well-crafted, quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a quality lamp I adore this lamp! I had been searching for a vintage model for a long time, but they are riduculously expensive and not usually wired for the US. I was so excited to find one here and I couldn't be happier with it. It is very substantial, easy to adjust and puts out a perfect amount of light. As always, Y Lighting's fast shipping and great communication were excellent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
