Anglepoise is a British lighting manufacturer. Best known for their iconic 1227 task lamp, introduced in 1935, they've released plenty more lamps in the decades since, all built on the principles of balance that made the original so popular it can be seen in vintage aircraft cockpits, animation studios, college dorms, and in the anthropomorphic friendliness of the iMac G4.
Innovative design and a timeless aesthetic have kept the Anglepoise Original 1227 illuminating workspaces for over 80 years — so naturally James Bond himself adorns his own flat with one, as seen in his most recent outing, Spectre. Also no stranger to Anglepoise is Bond's employer, as varying lighting sources from the British lamp maker can be seen on the desks of MI6 workers throughout other Bond films. Created by George Carwardine in 1935, the 1227 task light features his iconic tension spring mechanism that allows you to precisely position the light where it's needed. While the gloss paint finish comes in an almost-black "deep slate", the addition of solid brass components and a woven fabric cable transition this classic into any room, from a modern office to a handsome den.

M's choice of desk lamp in Skyfall, the Anglepoise 1228's flexibility goes beyond its design. The task light sits on a sturdy cast iron base and features a hinged aluminum arm. A rotating shade makes the light fully adjustable for both precise illumination or a subtle glow. While it still maintains the iconic look of the type 1227, the addition of an ice white shade offers a contemporary touch that is versatile enough for any room.
