Charlotte Abrahams, Design Writer.
Anglepoise and Margaret Howell renew their collaboration by introducing a smart new Sienna Edition into the best-selling Type 75 collection designed by Sir Kenneth Grange.
Offspring of the ever-popular 1970’s Model 90, the 90 Mini Mini lamp has all the versatility and personality of a classic Anglepoise® lamp wrapped up in its tiny form. At half the size of a standard desk lamp it's designed to fit just about anywhere - perfect if you're working on the go or in a low-lit coffee shop.
Whether your home boasts shelves of vintage vases or a sideboard strewn with stones sourced from your favourite beach, the right light can turn a collection of objects into a striking display. Here are design writer Charlotte Abrahams' top five ideas.
