back in 2005, the roald dahl museum and story centre commissioned anglepoise to design a triple scale version of its iconic 1930’s desk light. now in roald dahl’s centennial year, the british brand has expanded the prototype into the ‘giant collection’, making its US debut during new york design week 2016 at ICFF.

 

the series includes the first giant outdoor collection — incorporating marine-grade stainless steel fittings, a sealed light unit and durable silicone rubber cable; a wall-mounted light for both indoor and outdoor use; a 3-piece brass line featuring solid-brass components; and a triple-scale giant interpretation of the ‘type 75′ desk light’ — first designed by sir kenneth grange. these special additions accompany the ‘original 1227’ giant floor lamp and pendant, available in a color palette of 15 shades.

  • Love the style of the big 75. Really also love the lighting coming out of Lumiy with their Lightblade and Lightline Lamps
