Anglepoise unveil a new, enhanced, and greatly extended Giant Collection, including the first Giant Outdoor Collection, a new Giant wall mounted lamp with versions for indoor and outdoor use. For the first time, the Original 1227™ Giant has been re-engineered for outdoor. With marine-grade stainless steel fittings & IP65 ratings, turn a garden terrace into a striking al fresco room.
In 2005, when the Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre commissioned a triple scale version of the iconic 1930’s Anglepoise desk light as a humorous reference to the beloved Anglepoise lamp used by Dahl in his writing hut, – scaled up to befit the size of one of Dahl’s favourite characters, the BFG or Big Friendly Giant, no-one conceived quite where this would lead. Within a year, due to overwhelming demand, the Original 1227™ Giant floor lamp and pendant had become a staple of the Anglepoise range.
Now, fittingly in this, Roald Dahl’s centenary year, Anglepoise® is delighted to unveil at the Light + Building exhibition in Frankfurt a new, enhanced, and greatly extended Giant Collection, including the first Giant Outdoor Collection, a new Giant wall mounted lamp with versions for indoor and outdoor use, a premium 3-piece Giant Brass Collection featuring solid brass components AND a new triple scale Giant interpretation of their best-selling Type 75™ desk lamp – all this in addition to the Original 1227™ Giant floor lamp and pendant, which now comes in a stunning new colour palette. What’s more all the lamps are all hand built and made in Britain.
Of course the Original 1227™ Giant floor lamp is a beautifully crafted, highly functional light, with all the benefits afforded by the unique spring mechanism realised on a grander scale, but equally, it’s a highly impressive, illuminated sculpture. Now with white inner shade to maximise light output, metal chrome shade cap, logo etched plaque and smart, fabric covered cable, plus a brand new palette of 15 stunning colours (with custom colour options), the first and ever popular Anglepoise® Giant is even more appealing. And just consider the impact when the entire Original 1227™ Giant Collection, comprising the floor lamp, coordinating pendant shade and new articulated wall mounted lamp are combined… Photos by Jake Curtis; Styling by Hannah Simmons
