1227 gets supersized. The Anglepoise Giant 1227 Floor Lamp is three times the size of the standard lamp--more than 6' tall. While certainly useful as a reading lamp, its dramatic proportions, adjustability and range of colors also make Giant1227 the ideal conversation piece next to--and over--a dining table.
As an exercise in green design, this LEED Platinum–certified house puts a check in every column: passive solar, active solar, rainwater collection, natural daylighting and ventilation, energy-efficient electrical and mechanical systems, resource-conserving materials, a tight building envelope, low-VOC finishes, and no-irrigation landscaping. What got the attention of our judges, though, was that its environmental ethos also yields a thoroughly pleasing aesthetic experience.
