Anglepoise® is renowned as a manufacturer of functional task lighting. However, the ‘Fifty' lamp, which retains a simplified task element to the design, strays into ambient lighting by creating a relaxed atmosphere ideal for social occasions. Ch
andeliers have traditionally been placed in areas of congregation, which creates an ideal pretext to celebrate the ‘Fifty' lamp's marriage of task and ambient lighting.
The ‘Fifty' lamp is frozen at fifty degrees and set in a solid
frame. Its form evokes a playful memory of the iconic movement of a classic Anglepoise® lamp. The ‘Fifty Chandelier' continues this implied movement; each lamp drops down elegantly from the ceiling, swinging out from the centre as if abseiling
from the ceiling rose. The sweeping circle made by the lamps offers six or twelve different angled positions, creating movement like pictures in a stop frame animation.
The ‘Fifty Chandelier' is made from injection-moulded polycarbonate
and white powder-coated steel and aluminium. It is available with orange, red or frosted clear lamps with a white cable.
