Giant table lamps light up Manchester

Acrylicize has designed a set of enormous lamps for Manchester’s Piccadilly Place, each paying homage to a different design period

The giant lights double as seating, shelter, and heating, and reference a range of styles – everything from Art Deco to Art Nouveau. A huge Anglepoise-style work lamp casts a beam of graphics across a nearby building, and passersby can lounge underneath a patterned Tiffany lamp or a bright green banker’s desk light. They’re intended to turn the surrounding square into a meeting point for the city, but also pay homage to key moments in Manchester’s history which are revealed in subtle design details.
