Anglepoise Updates a Giant

Anglepoise’s iconic 1930s desk lamp was British author Roald Dahl’s lighting of choice, so to celebrate a century since his birth, the lighting manufacturer is set to re-release a triple-sized version of his favorite lamp. Yes, sometimes bigger is better and in this case it is.


Originally commissioned in 2005 by the Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre, the lamp is scaled to suit the Big Friendly Giant, one of Dahl’s best-loved characters. The lamps is available in indoor and outdoor versions in multiple colour ways. That’s right – you can take it outside. The Giant has been re-engineered for outdoor environments, incorporating marine-grade stainless steel fittings, a sealed light unit and durable silicone rubber cable.

I need, I want.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
