Giant vintage banana lamp

 Archivesb Upload 1Stdibsc 270109 Aa Am Fre 03 Dscn7584 This giant banana is actually a floor lamp. It was designed by Louis Durot in the 1970s. It's almost 7 feet tall. That is one big banana lamp.

  1. I’m going to go against the flow, criticize BB, and be provocative and controversial!!!!

    It should be called a Vintage Giant-Banana Lamp instead. This is because the lamp is vintage, not the banana it portrays; a vintage banana is chiefly of interest to fruit flies (time flies, on the other hand, like an arrow).

    No doubt I’ll be disemvowelled or deleted, because my incisive wit, superior knowledge, and dissenting opinions are just too much for BoingBoing to tolerate! Behold me in my righteous martyrdom!

    Do you REALLY want the Humpers touching your big banana?

  3. Oh crimeny… this reminds me of a whole slew of mildly surreal riddles that were popular in ’77 or so. These were riddles like, “What’s purple and lights up?” (A: An electric grape.)

    Looks like someone took the idea in a literal direction.

    Ah, the 70s. When mimes had a prime-time TV show and burnt orange velour was considered a perfectly reasonable color/fabric choice for a T-shirt.

  4. This would be a great addition to any Carmen Miranda / Josephine Baker themed room.

    And absolutely nowhere else on earth.
