no. what you see above is not a miniature chair, but a giant lamp. to be more precise, it is the Anglepoise lamp designed by George Carwardine (1887-1948), recreated in an enormous proportion, dubbed as the Anglepoise Giant 1227 Floor Lamp. this design was also the design influence behind another lighting icon, the Luxo 1001 Lamp and have inspired many of today’s lighting design, including those offered by Ikea and this chandelier. laymen may not be fully aware that the Anglepoise lamp was quite a lighting design feat of its time. it features a novel tension spring scheme with arm-like coils that allows the lamp to be adjusted in any directions and remain stiff once positioned. the Giant 1227 is that lamp, made to the exact proportions as what the British automotive engineer had made it, but upsized to three times of its normal size. doesn’t it make you feel like Alice in Wonderland? this updated rendition now features modern day safety standards and is crafted from a combination of aluminum and stainless steel in painted finish. the good thing is, you can still acquire this beautiful floor lamp today for a grand price of £2,280 (about US$3,475).
