twentytwentyone is 20

twentytwentyone was founded in 1996, making 2016 its 20th anniversary year.

We are marking this milestone with a series of monthly features and events – both in-store and online – recalling the people, designs and occasions that have been formative in our development.

In January, we launched our anniversary year with an edit of 20 favourite furniture designs launched over the past two decades. For February, we present an edit of most missed vintage designs sold since 1996.

This look back over some of the exceptional designs we have sold includes rare and highly sought-after furniture and lighting by the twentieth century’s greatest designers, including Alvar Aalto, Robin Day, Charles and Ray Eames, Geoffrey Harcourt, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton and Gio Ponti – as well as some anonymous and attributed designs.

This summer, twentytwentyone’s designer lighting sale includes some genuine icons of  classic and contemporary lighting, from pendant lighting to table lamps and outdoor lights – all with significant discounts.

Lampe Gras 205 by Bernard Albin Gras for La Lampe Gras

Designed in 1921, the Lampe Gras was conceived by designer Bernard-Albin Gras for use in office and industrial spaces – but its visionary combination of ergonomic design and elemental simplicity has ensured its enduring appeal.

The Lampe Gras range includes wall bracket lights, floor lamps and table lights in a variety of configurations, all with the functional yet elegant aesthetic that is the hallmark of La Lampe Gras. Now reduced by 15% in the lighting sale.

Followme light designed by Inma Bermudez for Marset

The FollowMe lamp, designed by Inma Bermudez and manufactured by Marset, is a compact and appealing table lamp with a built-in battery. This is rechargable via a USB port, allowing you to take it wherever you go.

A tactile oak handle and a soft but highly effective glow makes this outdoor light the perfect companion for camping or simply sitting out after dark. Its neat polycarbonate shell is equally at home in an interior setting. Now reduced by 15%.

Lampe de Marseille designed by Le Corbusier in 1954

As its name suggests, the Lampe de Marseille was designed in 1949 by Le Corbusier for his ground-breaking experiment in communal living, the Unité d’Habitation in Marseille.

At once dramatically expressive and highly functional, this wall bracket lamp inspired by the industrial lighting of the time is truly a design classic. Available in standard or mini variations, and now reduced by 15%.

Bestlite BL7 designed by Robert Dudley Best and manufactured by Gubi

Bestlite lighting has been in continuous production since 1930. Designed by Robert Dudley Best (who was strongly influenced by the Bauhaus), Bestlite has long been championed by architects and designers for its handsome and highly efficient industrial styling.

The Bestlite range includes wall bracket lamps, table lamps and floor lamps, all of which are currently available to order at 15% off. Our lighting clearance sale includes a Bestlite BL1 table lamp and a Bestlite BL3 floor lamp available as one-off, ex-display items, now discounted by 25%.

VP1 Flowerpot pendant light by Verner Panton, manufactured by &Tradition

The twentytwentyone clearance sale also includes a range of exceptional ex-display pendant lighting, including some classics of modern design.

Currently available at a one-off discount of 30%, the VP1 Flowerpot pendant lamp was designed by Verner Panton in 1968. Playful yet rigorous, the VP1 captures the spirit of ’68 and remains a timeless icon of lighting design.

Non-display Flowerpot pendants also available to order at 15% off as part of our summer lighting sale.
