Sir Kenneth Grange
The iconic Sir Kenneth Grange, born in 1929, has been the Anglepoise design director since 2003. He started his illustrious career as a technical illustrator whilst doing military duty.
His prolific career spans over half a century and he is responsible for designing some of the most iconic and familiar products and appliances that shape our daily lives. Kodak cameras, the silhouette for the Intercity 125 train, Kenwood food mixers are just some of his well-known designs.
In association with four partners, they founded Pentagram, now an international design firm with offices in USA, Germany and London.
Grange was knighted for services to design in 2013 at the New Year's Honours. Grange's designs have won ten Design Council Awards, the Duke of Edinburgh’s prize for Elegant Design in 1966, and in 2001 he was awarded the Prince Philip Designers Prize, an award honouring lifetime achievement.
Since 2004, he has been designing lighting products such as the famous Type 75 and the Type 1228, which are two of the best known collections from Anglepoise.
