Description

The Hadrill and Horstmann lamp is a stand out example of British industrial design. An innovative barrel weight counterbalance mechanism gives the lamp an excellent range of motion and a memorable combination of form and function.

'Roller' lamps were the prized possession of design conscious architects and engineers of the era. The iconic design really elevated it from the standard spring loaded anglepoise lamp.

Note: This version is designed to be attached directly to the side of a desk or workbench
