The perfect lamp, designed by an engineer.
It's 1932, and automotive engineer George Carwardine is developing a formula for a new type of spring. He discovers that pivoting arms supported by a sequence of these springs can be repositioned with the lightest touch yet will remain perfectly in place once released. Carwardine has just created the blueprint for an Anglepoise: a perfectly balanced desk lamp, and his enduring legacy. British offices will never be the same.
