Description from Ylighting

Design by George Carwardine.

The 1227 was originally designed in 1935. George Carwardine, working in the automotive industry, was tinkering in his shop and developed a spring which could be moved easily in every direction yet also remain rigid when held in position. This new spring was the basis for the 1227. The shade was developed to concentrate the beam of light on the task at hand and therefore could use a lesser wattage lamp. Soon it was realized that the 1227 would work just as well for a reading lamp as it did for factory task lighting.

Reissued to celebrate it 75th Anniversary. The Original 1227 is made with aluminum arms and a heavily weighted base for extra stability.

Lamp Type: incandescent, compact fluorescent

Bulbs: 1 X 60W Medium Base Incandescent lamp, ships with a 12W energy-saving CFL spiral lamp.
