About

History

Our founders have a long history of creating disruptive and innovative products. In 2017 our Managing Director moved home and discovered other than novelty or cheap solar lights designed for gardens it wasn’t possible to buy cordless lamps, so he decided to make his own. After a little research it became clear the biggest challenger would be global safety certification and creating a genuine alternative to conventional lighting with a plug and cord.

Alexander Joseph was launched in September 2018 after 12 months of development and rigorous third-party certification.

Culture

We are a family run business, our owners and staff have a long history of making luxury products without compromise.

We care passionately about our reputation for quality and our customer service. If we say we will do something, we will do it. No ifs no buts. We always try to deal with people fairly and honestly, this extends to our greatest assets, our staff.

Made in Britain

We are particularly proud to say our lamps are 100% British. Every single component comes from British firms.

We visit all our suppliers to ensure we maintain our quality standards. New suppliers are only added if they are able to fulfill our suppliers charter.

Craftsmanship

Without exquisite craftsmanship, a beautiful design is destined to mediocrity, so craftsmanship is the cornerstone of everything we do and stand for. We seek out and hire the best artists, then provide them with an environment to allow their ability to shine.

Alexander Joseph has no automated and programmable processes. We make everything by hand, using traditional tooling. This said, we are always exploring new materials and techniques to expand our knowledge and ultimately our reputation.

Each lamp is issued with a serial number, every component and material along with the exact colour is recorded. This enables clients to replace a damaged lampshade, body, or component without the need to replace the lamp.

Technology

We created our own technology and have a series of patents pending. This means Alexander Joseph is the world’s only luxury cordless lamp maker.

Alexander Joseph has also developed its own bulb for use with lamps, this operates using less energy than traditional LED bulbs with the control drivers placed within the base of the lamp rather than the bulb. Our technology is hidden within a sealed base, or within the lamp body, this varies and is normally a function of the lamp design.

The technical team developed over a dozen innovative techniques in the way the batteries are charged then used, most of these are not used on any other cordless product. Collectively these techniques offer a step change in lamp endurance, making a cordless proposition viable. Lamps allow over 50 hours of use on a single charge, put another way, 3-4 weeks of evening use.

Collaborations

Eva Baron

Our first collaboration with Eva was on the design of our Decorex stand in 2019. We enjoyed working together so much Eva was commissioned to design a new range, Eva came up with two themes, they were so good we couldn’t decide so created both.

The Earth range uses natural metals and materials with a strong emphasis on texture and muted colours. Scribble pays homage the written word and allows customers to personalise their lamps.

Daedalian

We have always admired Daedalian Glass Studios and consider them the most innovative glass studio in the UK. An appreciation of craftsmanship for shared superyacht and interior design clients led to a collaboration.

The goal was to produce a spectacular one of a kind lamp in bronze. The glass body was created using hundreds of pieces of glass, heated, then fused together

DMark Concepts

Originally commissioned for the 2020 Geneva Motor Show and to commemorate 100 years of Bentley motor cars. Mulliner simultaneously follows the design principals of Bentley’s latest supercar and their iconic interiors.

Dorset based DMark are the epitome of traditional craftmanship. This Father and Son business has a tremendous passion for creating completely original pieces by hand. If you need your 1918 Bentley Blower, or your Aston Marin DB5 rebuilt by hand, these are the guys.
