GregoryWest | Anglepoise Original 1227 Giant Lamp

This is pure genius – a giant version of the Anglepoise Original 1227 desk lamp. The iconic perfect-balance design, which traces its origins to the 1930s, has graced countless offices, bureaus, and even Roald Dahl’s writing hut. Much too big for even the most ambitious tabletop, this crocodile-tongue-fueled incarnation has a shade diameter of seventeen inches, a maximum reach of almost nine feet, and weighs more than a hundred pounds. It’s even available in an outdoor version … in case you’d like to properly light your next squab caper. (via Gear Patrol)
