AmpLamp – 70s-style light meets audio system

Amplamp1

If you're in the market for a big and chunk 70s-style lamp and an audio system, you can now have both in one package – the AmpLamp.

Yes, on first glance, this looks like a refugee from 1973, but it's actually a very modern piece of technology, packing in the light via the big shade and a couple of energy saving light bulbs and the sound from speakers house around those bulbs.

You can just volume, bass and 'spatial awareness' (presumably for surround-like sound) and hook up an iPod, MP3 player or other gadget via the rear connectors. Don't like the look? No problem – other styles are also available. Shame about the price really, which starts at £1,200. If that doesn't put you off, you can pick one up now at Harrods. See over for an image of the back panel.
