Once again, Paul Smith has collaborated with Anglepoise® to create the Type 75™ Desk Lamp Edition Three; a true testament to this designer’s remarkable deftness in instilling modernity and new life into a well-loved design classic.
With its bold primary colour palette and angular form, Edition Three evokes the Bauhaus visual vocabulary of Dutch painter Mondrian’s De Stijl and launches to coincide with the run up to next year’s De Stijl centennial.
Set alongside the fresh, floral hues of Edition One and the rich, jewel-like tones of Edition Two, this new Type 75TM Paul Smith Edition both complements and contrasts; its hundred-year-old colour palette looks fresh, dynamic and contemporary.
“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, co-owner of Anglepoise®
“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
The Anglepoise+Paul Smith Edition Three will be available throughout the Cult showrooms across Australia and New Zealand from October 2016.
The Type 75 Desk Lamp Edition Three features a primary palette inspired by Mondrian, Bauhaus and Gerrit Richter.
