Angelpoise Lamp

Angelpoise Lamp is an iconic pieces of Industrial Design that has always captivated my attention. My earliest memory of this lamp is from my childhood when I would see Dad reading under the light of this lamp late into the night. The lamp’s shade was of a faded green colour, perhaps because of the heat from the incandescent bulb in it. As a curious kid,  I had burned my fingers quite a few times while fiddling with it and was not a fan of the weird mechanical contraption.

Much later, I realized that it was a replica of the iconic Angelpoise and truly understood its remarkable design. Angelpoise lamp is a design classic and has found a mention in popular songs, books and sculptures.
