When automotive engineer, George Carwardine chanced upon a formula for a new kind of spring, he had created the blueprint for a groundbreaking articulated task lamp that could combine ultimate flexibility with perfect stability. Two years later the Original 1227™ desk lamp was born.

Today, this highly adaptable and engagingly anthropomorphic light, is part of an exemplary nine-piece collection designed for different locations, from table and wall to ceiling and floor. Each piece is available in classic colours, including Linen White and Dove Grey, and comes with toning fabric-covered cord and traditional chrome fittings. The Original 1227™ Collection has always boasted unrivalled functionality; now it boasts unrivalled choice too.
