(UK) – Anglepoise unveils indoor and outdoor versions for its Giant Collection at Light+Building.
Coinciding with Roald Dahl’s centenary year as the original point of inspiration for the Giant range, the extended collection now includes the Giant Outdoor Collection, a new Giant wall mounted lamp with versions for indoor and outdoor use, a three-piece Giant Brass Collection featuring solid brass components and a new triple scale Giant interpretation of its Type 75 desk lamp. The Original 1227 Giant floor lamp is also now available in a new colour range.
For the first time, the Giant has been re-engineered for outdoor environments, incorporating marine-grade stainless steel sittings, a sealed light unit and durable silicone rubber cable. Big enough to make a statement, but also suited to smaller areas, Original 1227 Giant Outdoor Collection, which comprises a floor lamp and articulated wall mounted lamp available in fifteen colour options, is a flexible piece product for outdoor use.
A super-sized version of the Original 1227 Brass, the new Original 1227 Giant Brass Collection features finely crafted, solid brass components and fabric covered cable to create a luxurious aesthetic across the range. Consisting of a floor lamp, wall mounted lamp and pendant, one main feature of the range is the solid brass block that appears on both the floor and wall mounted lamps
Also part of the Giant collection is the new Type 75 Giant floor lamp, three times the size of Sir Kenneth Grange’s Type 75 Desk Lamp, available in brushed aluminium plus three classic satin powder finish colours, offering a striking, modernist alternative to the Original 1227 Giant. Featuring precision machined components and a rotating shade that offers not only a switched bulb system to allow for multiple light levels, but also unique half-effect illumination, this is a functional and timeless statement piece.
The Original 1227 Giant floor lamp is also now available with a white inner shade to maximise light output, metal chrome shade cap, etched logo plaque and fabric covered cable, as well as a new palette of fifteen colours with custom colour options.
The new Anglepoise Giant Collection will be launched to the trade at Light+Building in Frankfurt from March 13-18 2016 in Hall 1.1 Stand G50.
Throughout April, iconic British department store Harrods will showcase the Giant Collection as part of the ‘London Edit’, a round-up of the season’s essential interior trends, which will take place in the store’s Brompton road windows, as well as through room sets across the Second and Third Floors.
