As its name suggests, the Anglepoise Original 1227 Giant is practically identical to the great George Carwardine’s original Anglepoise lamp from 1934 – only it’s three times bigger!
On its release in 2004 the film director Tim Burton immediately snapped one up to make his classic animation, utilising the lithe manoeuvre-ability of this iconic lamp to literally bring it to life. It has a powder-coated aluminium shade, aluminium arms and joints, stainless steel fittings and a weighted base on castors for ease of movement. It also has the benefits from Anglepoise’s constant tension spring technology.
Playful and individualistic, the Giant 1227 is also highly functional – with an enormous 2.7 metre reach, it’s ideal for the drawing office or story-boarding. Use it in the lounge or living room – or try it in the playroom: there’s not a child in the world who wouldn’t want to utilise it as a teleporter.

Something else worth bearing in mind before you make your investment - an original 30s Anglepoise lamp recently sold at auction in L.A. for six times the current price of a new one.
