Anglepoise Type 80 Collection launch

August 8, 2019

(UK) – Anglepoise introduces contemporary lighting collection designed by renowned British industrial product designer Sir Kenneth Grange in his 90th year.

Offering a premium lighting solution for both domestic and commercial interiors, the collection includes lights for table, wall and ceiling that combine high style with ease of installation and durability.

Distinguished by a striking, graphic profile, Type 80’s design is further enhanced by an attractive ‘halo’ light-escape feature in the shade. This adds an extra dimension in low light environments – a refinement characteristic of Sir Kenneth’s designs for the brand.

“In the history of domestic lighting there is one truly iconic element and it must surely be the conical shade, so is right that Anglepoise should have such a classic iconic design in their portfolio,” says Grange. “Moreover, with every new model that we launch there is an innovation, no matter how modest. With the Type 80 the visual attraction of light spilling onto the shade outer surface aims to make the iconic even more distinguished.”

Every detail has been carefully considered with as much finesse as possible. Joints are precision engineered to new exacting standards. Elegant style combined with ease of use distinguishes this collection. Both table and wall versions feature sprung joint mechanisms, cables that are discreetly routed through the arms and an accessible on-shade on/off switch. The wall sconce and ceiling rose are visually aligned and easy to install. The collection comes in four sophisticated, ultra-matte colour choices – Rose Pink, Pistachio, Grey Mist and Matte Black.

Until February 2020 the collection is available exclusively at and John Lewis & Partners stores nationwide, thereafter at selected UK retailers and dealers.
