Anglepoise lamp: GIVE-AWAY

July 14, 2010

SO. Would you like to get your sticky little mitts on a silver Anglepoise Type75 lamp? HomeShoppingSpy has exploited contacts, pleaded and BEGGED. And the good news is, we’ve got hold of this lamp from the lovely lighting experts at John Lewis. I told them it would be going to a good home and, in fact, it COULD be winging it’s way to YOUR home!

I thought about organising some sort of mammoth competition with complicated questions relating to the history of the Anglepoise. I considered asking something mind-boggling such as: Who designed the Type75? (Kenneth Grange). When was Herbert Terry’s iconic brand born? (1855). What else has Kenneth Grange designed? (The London black cab, the Kenwood food mixer, and the Kodak Instamatic.) BUT. What with the power of Google etc, as I’ve just demonstrated, it all seemed rather pointless. So, this is a good ol’ fashioned give-away, folks. To enter, just leave me a comment on the end of this post with your name and email address. On Wednesday 28th July 2010, I’ll put all the names in a hat and pull out a winner – and then I’ll send that lucky person a gorgeous, brand new, silver Anglepoise Type75 desk lamp. Remember, as my PE teacher used to say: You’ve got to be in it, to win it. – Ellie
