Giant Anglepoise Lamp – super cool 70th aniversary lamp says it bigger, brighter and more retro

Giantanglepoise

This 70th anniversary Giant Anglepoise Lamp gets our vote as the lighting implement of the week. The gorgeous retro 1930’s design still holds its own in the style stakes, although we can’t help feeling that having a mammoth lampshade hanging over their shoulder could make your visitors feel a trifle uncomfortable in one of those malevolent whack-a-mole Pixar icon kinda ways. £1,450.00.

 To celebrate the 70th Birthday of the original 1227 Anglepoise Lamp this three times life-size Anglepoise has been created. Each lamp is hand made (the black version is a limited edition) and comes with the modern day addition of casters (it’s darn heavy) to move it around on, and a dimmer switch, as well as the ability to lock it in position for added safety. As you can see, this is no cheap light, but we reckon it’s possibly the coolest standard lamp we’ve ever seen, and we’ve no doubt that these handmade originals will one day become collectors items.
