The iconic 1930’s Anglepoise desk light is something you’ve probably seen many times before, but now they’re launching the extended Anglepoise Giant Collection later this month in Frankfurt, and in May for North America.

In 2005, the Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre commissioned a triple scale version of the desk lamp, which was used by Dahl when he was writing his book The BFG (Big Friendly Giant). The lights have been scaled to fit the size of the BFG character.

Since then, the giant floor lamp and pendant became a staple of the collection.

The new pieces of the collection are the outdoor versions, like the new Giant wall-mounted light for indoor and outdoor use seen below.
