Vintage White Hadrill & Horstmann Simplus Counterbalance Anglepoise Roller Desk Lamp
Pickup currently unavailable
Not about the follow the trend of the spring loaded anglepoise lamp designed by George Carwardine for Herbert Terry in the 1930s, Hardrill and Horstmann instead opted to create a barrel weighted counterbalance mechanism, creating an elegant lamp that helped immortalise the designers far beyond the standard offerings that came before them.
These lamps have affectionately and appropriately become known as 'Rollers', with a seamless fluid movement these lamps are just as satisfying to move as they are to look at.
In general good condition with the usual wear commensurate with age, including some make, chipping, discolouring and scratching to the paintwork along with some light dints here and there. The lamp keeps it positions well, except positioned at it's tallest where these is some fall back.
The lamp has been fully rewired with approximately 222cm of 3 core twisted 'old gold' nylon flex along with a new chrome lamp holder and 3 pin UK plug.
Due to the many adjustable positions of the lamp, it's quite a tricky one to measure but here's a few approximate measurements, feel free to get in touch should you require any more. At the tallest point with everything standing to attention/upright, the light measures 89cm while the base of the lamp measures 15cm square. Finally, the cone measures 16.6cm long with a diameter of 16.5cm.
