Hurry in Anglepoise Paul Smith Edition 3 Now in Stock!

Paul Smith Edition 3 is now in stock at Inform Interiors just in time for the Holidays!

Edition utilizes primary color palette evoking the the visual vocabulary of Dutch painter Mondrian

“The wonderful thing about having the opportunity to work on another Anglepoise lamp is that the two editions I’ve done up to now are almost like a winter and summer version. One in dark rich colours and the other in brighter pastels. What I’ve decided to do this time is take inspiration from the artist Mondrian and use accent colours of white, red, yellow, and blue.” –Paul Smith

“Paul Smith’s remarkable ability to reimagine and then reimagine again is a testimony to his unique way of interpreting the world around us.” –Simon Terry, Anglepoise Director

This Edition joins both Edition 1 and Edition 2 that are still available at Inform Interiors; however stock is dwindling of the previous iterations so hurry in while supplies last.
