George Carwardine ‘1227 Giant floorlamp’ for Anglepoise
When automotive engineer, George Carwardine chanced upon a formula for a new kind of spring, he had created the blueprint for a groundbreaking articulated task lamp that could combine ultimate flexibility with perfect stability. Two years later the Original ‘1227’ model was born.
Originally commissioned by Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, in deference to the beloved Anglepoise lamp that Dahl used in his writing hut, was this table lamp inspiration for the Original 1227 Giant, designed and ‘enlarged’ by George Carwardine.
The freestanding Giant (really huge) floor lamp is a beautifully crafted, functional light and an impressive, illuminated sculpture. This floorlamp will introduce an element of playful, individual style into any interior space.
This lamp can be moved around on its 4 wheels and bent and bown in all directions. The lamp is in good condition consistent with age and use.
