From the beginning of the 1933 film industry of time it has passed: (King) Kong, the ferocious beast turned into a good hero when the feelings began to resurface, and, abandoned reluctantly the jungle, the city now seems to have become a habit, New York or any other.
The lamp Kong XS of Stefano Giovannoni is, surprisingly, technological and almost human, sheds light in front of him just as if the power had gone out. Its physicality is out of scale to be a toy, out of scale to be a lamp, but it is also out of scale to be a gorilla.
With its 53 cm height, the Kong in XS version, can be used both as a table lamp and floor lamp and leaves more space for creativity and the possibility of customizing the house.
