The Anglepoise lamp is one of the coolest and most innovative lamps ever, and to celebrate its 70th birthday the company has designed a Giant Anglepoise Lamp that is three times the traditional size. Look at it, it just freaking awesome. Imagine having one in your living room, oh the ladies would swoon. Unfortunately this lamp starts at £1,234 ($2,300) for the white and cream version, and the black version runs £1,660 ($3,100). What's the deal with companies making the black models more expensive? I really want a black MacBook but I'll be damned if I have to pay a couple hundred dollars more for it.
Anglepoise are the original designers of the three spring task light. Luxo were licenced to sell the light. Also the black version costs more as it is a limited edition light that was released for Anglepoise's 70th birthday. Only 250 are being made in black. The pixar light is a lot newer than the Anglepoise company.
