The Most Famous Task Lamp Ever Made Just Got More User-Friendly

Anglepoise’s mini version of its mini version is ideal for tiny desks.


British design icon Anglepoise has been making lamps since the 1930s, and between now and then, those lamps have made their way into design museums, onto British postage stamps and atop millions of end tables and desks worldwide.
