At first glance, the Anglepoise + Paul Smith lamp looks like a typical task lamp. In point of fact, it is a modern version of the Anglepoise Type75 table lamp. A special limited edition, it adds a nice touch of color to the legs of the fixture, which brings a playful aesthetic to the otherwise practical design.

In this way, the Anglepoise + Paul Smith lamp is imbued with the latter designer's signature style. Yellow, blue and pink come together in a happy way to visually elevate the original design, which appears to have only been available in black and silver. The lampshade is white as well as its upper arm. The base is silver and boasts a Paul Smith signature.
