When automotive engineer George Carwardine chanced upon a formula for a new kind of spring, he’d created the blueprint for a groundbreaking articulated lamp that combined ultimate flexibility with perfect stability. Two years later the Original 1227™ was born.
Our adjustable ceiling lights are focused for task efficiency, whilst our pendant lights disperse light more generally and add visual impact to an interior space. Consider a combination of the two for multi-task spaces.
Our sturdy, multi-purpose Original 1227™ wall lamp, with its flexible shade, articulated bracket and perfect balance, gives you all the benefits of the Original 1227™ desk and table lamps in a stylish, wall mounted form. Ideal for domestic or commercial use.
There is so much more to the pendant light than a single shade marooned in the centre of the ceiling. Charlotte Abrahams has some extremely stylish suggestions:
Here at Anglepoise®, we have had eight decades to perfect the now iconic form and function of our products; valuable experience that has allowed us to craft a truly exceptional range of ceiling lights. The essence of many of our well known historic designs permeates through our current ranges. This can be seen especially clearly in the design of the Original 1227™ Brass Pendant ceiling light, which elegantly reflects the original, classic Anglepoise® lamp design.
The uncomplicated design of Anglepoise® ceiling lamps makes them incredibly easy to use, To choose the design that will best suit your purpose, consider colour, size and also function.
Task lights may be functional but that doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. Go for something simple in form and use repetition to create impact. Hanging a line of identical, pared down pendants along the length of a work top or multi-purpose kitchen table, for example, is a smart way to get light where you need it. (Tip: run over-the table lights on a dimmer switch so that you can create different atmospheres: bright for home work and dim for supper parties.)

Original 1227™ Brass Wall Light, £125 & Pendant, £95 in Dusty Blue
Our dedication to excellence spans over 80 years, since the Anglepoise® brand was first established in 1934. Over the intervening years we have carefully analysed and fine tuned the original Anglepoise® desk lamp design to ensure that all our more contemporary designs not only reflect the style, durability and practicality expected of an Anglepoise® lamp; but that they also incorporate essential modern features to maintain their relevance today.
Nothing says ‘chic modern home’ quite like a cluster of pendant shades hanging low over a sideboard or dining table. Whether you stick to a single style or go for an eclectic selection of different shades is up to you, but it is important to vary the heights and form your groups in odd, rather than even numbers. (Three, five even seven if you’re feeling brave.)

First launched in 1935, the Original 1227™ is still in production today and set the standards by which other desk lamps were measured.
The largest Anglepoise® ceiling light is the aptly named Giant 1227™ Pendant ceiling light, which comes in a range of ten different colours, grouped into three distinct categories, each of which suits a particular theme or interior design style: Classic, Tranquil or Vivid. As is no doubt apparent from the larger size, Giant 1227™ Pendant ceiling lights are best suited to lighting larger areas of a room, making them ideal for suspending over large worktop spaces in kitchens, for example falling between the small and Giant pendants are the Maxi ceiling lights; namely the Duo™ Maxi Pendant, the Original 1227™ Brass Maxi Pendant and the Type 75™ Maxi Pendant. Whether used individually or as a group, these pendant ceiling lightsare ideal for illuminating targeted areas of a specific room or feature, such as a seating or dining area,or perhaps to give character to a hallway.
Add drama to hallways and stairwells with a statement pendant light. Try experimenting with colour and scale; an injection of brilliant colour will add zing to a dark hallway for example, while an over-scaled shade is a playful, contemporary take on the traditional chandelier.
Combining the traditional Anglepoise® shape shade with attractive braided, coloured cable the Original 1227™ now comes in 3 sizes and can be used singly, matched with others, or in a series of multi-coloured hanging shades, to create a striking visual feature.
Duo™ Maxi Pendant in Jet Black with black and white cable, £120
Who says lamps have to stand on the floor? A small pendant, suspended from the ceiling over an armchair or beside makes a great reading light – particularly when space is tight.
Draw attention to an arrangement of lovely objects with a pool of focused light from a perfectly-placed spot light. Wall lights such as Anglepoise’s Brass Wall Light (see below) work well, or try a single pedant hung low over the display. (Tip: if you are hanging lights low, then do think about the cable: no one want to look at a meter of plastic wire.)
Our Original 1227™ Collection has always boasted unrivalled functionality; now it boasts unrivalled choice too. Today, this highly adaptable and engaging lamp has grown into an exemplary seven-piece collection and is available in up to five colours.
