Synonymous with coloured stripes, British fashion designer Paul Smith has now made his mark in the home with new collaborations with Carl Hansen & Son and Anglepoise. For the 100th anniversary of Danish designer Hans J. Wegner’s birth, Paul Smith joined hands with Carl Hansen & Son to give Wegner’s iconic furniture classics such as the Shell chair and Wing chair new colourful upholstery. The fabrics, by Maharam, play with stripes of different widths and contrasting colours to lend these mid-century pieces a fun new look.

Just launched at the Clerkenwell Design Week, is the Anglepoise + Paul Smith, the fashion designer’s interpretation of the Anglepoise Type75 table lamp designed by Sir Kenneth Grange. Each component of the classic lamp is given a different colour, and some might say discordant hues, of grey-olive, fuchsia, lime, cornflower, and clay. However, they create brilliant contrast when viewed together.

Carl Hansen & Son is available at Space Furniture.
The Anglepoise + Paul Smith lamp will be available to pre-order on both the Anglepoise and Paul Smith websites mid-August.
