New at Inform Interiors: Anglepoise + Paul Smith Type 75 Edition Two

"After the success of my first Anglepoise lamp, I'm very happy to be working with them again on a fresh version.  I hope everyone likes it!"- Paul Smith
Once again Paul Smith has collaborated with Anglepoise to create Type 75 Desk Lamp-Paul Smith-Edition Two.  This lamp is a testament to this designer's remarkable deftness in instilling modernity and new life into a well-loved design classic.  The lamps will be available from September, ready for the start of the festive season.

If Edition One, with its sunny combination of cornflower, fuchsia and lime, is evocative of summer, then the Edition Two is its alter ego, evoking the deep, rich hues of autumn.  Combined with deep slate and cool grey, the striking mix of sumptuous, jewel-like colors is smart, restrained, sophisticated. Add a bold accent of orange - that element of surprise so intrinsic to Paul Smith style - and the colors take on a new intensity.

Seen in tandem, each Edition assumes a distinct and contrasting identity, helped, no doubt, by the antheopomorphic form of the lamps themselves: Edition One the more playful, perhaps more feminine of the two and Edition Two its stunning new counterpart.

"Anglepoise, never out of fashion and a product that will last and last, and Paul Smith, a special slant  on design with invention, humor and some charming eccentricity: a unique design partnership of two great British companies"--Sir Kenneth Grange
