Anglepoise deal

The word 'iconic' is wildly overused, but I'm going to go ahead and use it about Anglepoise lamps. Designed in Britain, they're a true 20th century classic that, thanks to regular colour revamps, is still going strong in the 21st.

And today, you can get an Anglepoise Type 75 Mini with a big discount. It's a real lightbulb moment! Quite literally!

Anglepoise Type 75 Mini: it's like the Type 75, but smaller

Designed in Britain by Kenneth Grange, the Type 75 has proved to be an enduring classic, found in countless offices and, more laterly, homes. The Mini, as you would imagine, is a more recent, scaled down version meant more as a style piece than as a work lamp.

Despite that, it keeps the heavy base of the original, along with the easily and endlessly moveable aluminium arms, with stainless steel fittings. An E14 mini screw fit bulb is required – perhaps a Philips Hue might suit you? An LED bulb is provided, though.

There are small discounts on the black and white models at Amazon, but the real deals are to be found on the slate grey and powder blue models, which are £82.56 and £68.74 respectively.

Springs and style: all you need to know about the Anglepoise

Anglepoise's 'constant tension spring technology' allows for a great range of movement. The heavy base means it has perfect balance, making it possible to move the adjustable, handsome shade to all manner of positions, which it then holds.

The Type 75 Mini series is a scaled-down, 'fun' update of the Type 75, 'offering all the functionality… in a more compact and colourful form.' The smart satin finish is durable and chic.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
