In the all-new Edition Four, Paul Smith revisits a unique patchwork colour scheme created for a unique version of the Land Rover Defender. Paul’s original 27-colour palette alluded to the Defender’s past as a multi-purpose utilitarian workhorse, referencing its use on the farmyard and in the emergency services.
Design Director of Anglepoise since 2003, Sir Kenneth Grange began his illustrious career as a technical illustrator whilst in National Service. He subsequently made his reputation as an industrial product designer and in association with four partners founded Pentagram, now an international design practice with offices in USA, Germany and London. Grange’s remarkable work spans half a century and his user-centered, often quintessentially British designs have helped shape the parameters of everyday life for so many. Not only everyday household brands like Kenwood, Parker, Kodak - and of course Anglepoise - have received the Kenneth Grange treatment but also the InterCity 125 train, the regional Royal Mail postbox and the latest London BlackTaxi.
