Anglepoise no.3 Restoration


In the past the Anglepoise that I have restored have been in a condition where they have only required a small touch up of paint, where I can I prefer to keep as much of the original paint as possible. This one however required a full strip down and re-paint.

Anglepoise 1227 – Fitted with brass light fitting and three core fabric flex. In Matt Dark Grey.

Project: Toy Train


As part of the Design Communications module a model/prototype had to be produced based on a current product, a train was clearly chosen in this case. The original was purchased from a well known pound shop. The model that was created had to be a variation of the current product, much like they would do in industry to keep sales up and refreshed.
