Big is beautiful, but if you doubt that then let this huge floor lamp be your stylish proof. The Bender lamps by Northern Lighting feature huge oversized shades perched atop their bowed base, hence their name. The organic shape continues right down to the floor. “Bender is inspired by the often-overlooked, but indispensable, workhorse of plumbing: the humble pipe,” according to Northern Lighting. The shade pivots in all directions, allowing the light to be used as general ambient lighting or as task lighting, focusing its giant spotlight for reading, watching television or whatever hobby occupies your time. A dimmer switch takes you from bright-white light to a gentle, romantic glow. The Bender lamp is finished in matte powder-coated aluminum that gives it warmth and sophistication. These floor lamps are available in black, white or steel, measuring 165 cm high and 32 cm in diameter. Buy it at Svenssons.
