Contemporary desk lights, floor lamps & wall lights

Classic energy efficient lighting designs by Colin Chetwood & Nick Grantbirch ply light

LockLamp is a collaboration between two friends who were unsatisfied with available light fittings, despite the apparently huge choice. We design and make contemporary energy efficient lighting. Our desk lights, floor lamps and wall lights are already being acclaimed as classics by Architects and designers. We have a range of standard designs and undertake commissions for bespoke domestic, commercial and educational projects.

Desk Lights

contemporary desk lampThese desk lights looks great in any setting. An elegant alternative to the Anglepoise they are designed and hand-made in Herefordshire. Elegant and unobtrusive but rock solid. Choose from the slim steel G4 12V LED model or the birch ply E27 compact fluorescent / mains voltage LED model.

The adjustable models all use the unique LockLamp mechanism which we developed to solve the problem of heavier modern lamps such as LEDs and compact fluorecents causing our anglepoise style lights to droop.

Classic design

classic designer LED desk lampLock Lamp; meticulously designed but not designer, hand crafted but not crafty. A collaboration between Colin Chetwood Lighting and Nick Grant. Originally designed as a desk lamp, LockLamp also makes an ideal bedside light or table lamp. Please browse our site and discover our other contemporary energy efficient lighting products.

E27 Floor Lamps

The E27 model has an Edison screw lamp holder making it suitable for a wide range of mains voltage LED or compact fluorescent bulbs. The base is a heavy steel plate with a mill scale finish.

The LED desk light is also available as a floor lamp / reading light. The base is a generous 12mm (half inch) thick steel plate for stability. The uprights are made from single lengths of nickel plated steel tube to avoid wobbly joints. This means a bigger box for transport but a small price to pay for quality.

Anglepoise alternative

The LockLamp gravity lock

The Lock Lamp mechanism really could not be simpler or more robust. The lamp can me moved vertically and rotated about two axes. The mechanism is self locking thanks to gravity and friction. This unique design means that Lock Lamp stays put without constant adjustment.

The LockLamp mechanism is idealy suited to modern LED and compact fluorescent lamps which are heavier than traditional bulbs.

Heavy steel base

Despite the slim minimalist looks, you won’t find a stronger more robust light. The materials are simple but solid with waxed or nickel plated steel, birch ply and aluminum. Plastic is reserved for electrical components.
