At first glance they recall the fantastic and allegorical adventures created by Jonathan Swift with his Gulliver’s travels.
We are talking about giant lamps: solutions that, a bit like Lilliput, are inspired or copy all over the mini version of the table or desk lamps, except for the size.
There are many manufacturers who have enjoyed creating macro versions of the support lamps, to be combined with mini-sisters to furnish the living room, the bedroom and why not, even the outdoor.
A sort of search for amazement, both for contrast effects and for particular extra large.
This is what happens with Tree of Light, the giant table lamp, which is actually a great solution from the ground, to be combined with a dining table or sofa. Created by the team of Vormstudio, formed by Renier Winkelaar and Anke Boelens, the lamp is a contrast of materials, with details made of steel and structure instead of oak wood.
View from afar it looks like a table lamp, of which there is also a small version, but in reality it is two meters high and has a series of seams able to make it particularly articulated and comfortable to illuminate also a large space of the house or in the garden or Still on a terrace.
It reminds us of its own name, giant 1227, the version of the giant table lamp created by the English company Anglepoise, to celebrate the 75 years of production of Anglepoise 1227, the table lamp with the original design by George Carwardine.
GIANT 1227 has a adjustable structure, is made of colored aluminum, in shades of Grey, orange, red, orange and cream; It supports a particular 100 watt bulb, also ideal for illuminating at a great distance.
The giant table lamp is appended to new creations in mini version, by Anglepoise Type1227 and Anglepoise Type1228, created by designer Kenneth Grange.
After 70 years from the famous L1, also Luxit created a few years ago a giant version of its most famous table lamp, born from the pen of Jac Jacobsen.
With a height of 2.3 meters and 80 kg of weight, this structure in appearance seems very light is able to amaze, as well as for the context also for the similarity out of scale with its homonymous mini.
Great JJ, the initials of the designer, is the archetype of the classic table light, then taken in many versions and many other companies.
Rigorous and essential lines, on an aluminum structure, declined in white, black and grey, also available for exteriors, which is only a meticulous but oversize version of the original model of 1937, created by the ITre style Center, the group’s brand, together with the Historical Luxit.
Giant lamps also for outdoor
The Swan XL lamp, the giant version of the table lamp created by Eero Aarnio, is instead of the Finnish company.
Created specifically to be combined with a comfortable reading armchair, it has an imposing shape, original and definitely in contrast to the slender shapes of giant lamps seen so far.
Composed of three elements, the base, the stem and the illuminating body, consists mainly of rotational molded polyethylene (PE-HD) and is available in the three colors white, black and yellow. Swan XL is a floor lamp designed to be placed near the armchair of a reader in need of light.
It provides an excellent focal point for both lighting a small corner of a private space, and in large public environments.
In short, this product made in Finland meets the needs of anyone who needs a lot of light!
And among the most famous brands could not Miss Artemide with his classic and unforgettable Ptolemy, in the corresponding oversize model!
Ptolemy XXL is the giant version of the table lamp created in 1987 by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassia.
Base of 92 cm in concrete, with a movable arms structure in polished aluminium and a diffuser made of satin opal thermoplastic material.
Scale 1:4, for an illuminating body that of the table lamp has only the shapes, with its almost 3 meters high, that allow to illuminate even particularly large environments, always wonderful for the unprecedented combination. Especially in the outdoor version.
The only drawback is that the design in this case has a price not really accessible: it is around 6,000 euros!
