  • The Original 1227 Task Light from Anglepoise was initially designed in 1935 and has been reissued to celebrate its 75th anniversary. 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 aluminum shade was developed to concentrate the beam of light on the task at hand and therefore could use a lesser wattage lamp. The arm, which is also made out of aluminum, lets one adjust the lamp at the appropriate height, and the entire structure is supported by a weighted table base. It is no wonder it did not take long for the public to realize the 1227 would work just as well for a reading lamp as it did for factory task lighting.


    Based in Britain, Anglepoise began as a metal spring and presswork company in 1855, evolved into creating lamps in the early 1930s, and today specializes in classic British design. Their modern creations are practical, energy efficient and durable, incorporating quality design and craftsmanship—a work ethic they have brought to their line of furniture as well. With selections like the iconic Original 1227 Task Light, based on a 1935 design, and the stylish Type 75 Light, Anglepoise's beloved lamps complement a variety of interiors.

    Original 1227 Task Lamp is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardworking Lamp! Love the retro style. Very sturdy, and lots of adjustments to get it just the way you want it for your task.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from design classic This Anglepoise lamp arrived in good condition. It was easy to put together, and I am not handy. I admire the classic design and the delicate balance, which can be adjusted by means of a little wrench that comes with it. I am an editor, and I like the way I can position the lamp exactly where I need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design This table lamp is a classic design, barely changed over the years they've been around. The base is nice and heavy. The whole lamp is very well made. The black color looks stylish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect modern classic These lamps would enhance any décor, from City sophisticated to Country farmhouse. They are sturdy as well as handsome and they provide great reading light on bedroom end-tables. I do wish they had dimmer switches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it The Anglepoise 1227 is a superbly designed lamp which provides light exactly where you want it. I chose the chrome option, which looks terrific as a bedside light. It was a little expensive, but worth it. However, it does need some assembly, arriving with a small plastic bag full of bits but no instructions. An email to Anglepoise in the UK got an immediate response and a pdf. You will need those instructions as it's not at all obvious what all the bits are for!

    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.
    Date published: 2015-01-13
    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.
