Details

For years, George Carwardine worked as an automobile engineer for Horstmann Cars Limited, working on vehicle suspension systems. When the company went bankrupt in 1929, he seized the opportunity to explore a longstanding fascination with spring- and lever-based mechanisms, establishing a workshop at his home in Bath, England, and began work on the design that would cement his legacy. After chancing upon a new kind of spring, he developed the blueprint for a groundbreaking articulating lamp that would combine flexibility with stability, and Original 1227 (1935) was born. This iconic lamp features an Anglepoise constant spring tension mechanism for spot-on positioning. Bulb (included): 13W/E26 CFL. UL Listed. Backed by a lifetime warranty. Made in China.

George Carwardine

Born in 1887, George Carwardine was a British automotive engineer who created a lasting design legacy with his groundbreaking task lamp, the Original 1227. The articulating design is the upshot of his fascination with suspension systems, featuring a four-spring mechanism and weighted base that allows for spot-on positioning without a clamp. Today it’s in museums – and homes – across the world.
