London UK, July 2011: Thumbs Up, the ingenious British gift and gadget developer, announces the ultimate designer geek light, the Giant LED Table Lamp. This modern mood-light is available in August for £19.99. Revered for their colour-changing capacity and exceptionally long life span, LEDs have paved the way for contemporary lighting. The Giant LED Table Lamp is a supersized version of the funky LED, measuring 36cm. With stylish bendable metallic legs the lamp can be manipulated to stand on either a table top or attach to surrounding furniture. Colour-phasing through a rainbow of hues the Giant LED Table Lamp brings a bit of mood to your lighting.
LEDs were first created in the mid 1920s. Russian born Oleg Vladimirovich Losev was the first to create an LED with experimenters in Texas, Bob Biard and Gary Pittman, patenting it in 1961 as an infrared light-emitting diode. The Giant LED Table Lamp uses this scientific discovery as a basis for geek chic interior lighting. The lamp’s LED cycles ambiently through seven colours – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
True to its origins, the Giant LED Table Lamp uses a minimal 3 Watts of power to illuminate in style. The lamp is minimalist and wireless, cleverly running from just 3 AAA batteries. The Giant LED Table Lamp brings science and style together for one seriously cool, modern light form.
