Foscarini Gregg

Foscarini Gregg Table LightThe Foscarini Gregg A Versatile and Organic Lighting Solution

If you’re looking for a light that follows a simple, organic line with no pure geometry, the Foscarini Gregg might be for you. Whether you need a table or floor lamp, fitted wall or ceiling light or an elegant suspension light, the Foscarini Gregg has a model fit for purpose. There is even a version of the Foscarini Gregg that is designed for outdoor use.

All of the lights are variations around a standard egg-shaped diffuser made of satinised blown glass.

First we have the handy and stylish Gregg Table Lamp, mounted on a lacquered metal base and available in three sizes. The small version measures 13cmx11cmx11cm and takes a 20w halogen bulb; the medium lamp measures 31cmx26cmx26cm and can either take a 150w halogen bulb or a 20w compact fluorescent (CF) one. The large lamp is 47cmx40cmx40cm and runs a 205w halogen or 20w CF bulb.

Foscarini Gregg Floor LampThen there is the elegant Gregg Floor Light, which comes in four versions: medium short and tall, and large short and tall. Unlike the table lamp, the floor lamp supports the diffuser on a stem of lacquered polyurethane. The shortest lamp (medium-short) stands 120cm high followed by the 138cm large-short model. The medium-tall lamp stands 168cm from the ground, while the tallest model (large-tall) measures 190cm.

Ceiling lights come in either a small or medium size, with the compact little light measuring just 12cm high, 13cm wide and 11cm deep; this is perfect when space is at a premium. The medium version is 27cm high, 31cm wide and 26cm deep, bringing a gentle, familiar glow to a larger interior space.

Both creations take halogen bulbs, with the small Gregg requiring a 20w G9 bulb and the large one needing a 150w E27 bulb. Alternatively, the large Gregg can be fitted with a 23w compact fluorescent bulb.

The suspension lights have identical measurements to the table lamps and run on 33w, 150w or 205w halogen bulbs, depending on their size. For those of us looking to cut down on energy consumption, the medium and large versions are also compatible with 30w compact fluorescent bulbs.

The gentle contours of the diffuser are perfectly in tune with nature, making the Outdoor Gregg a beautiful feature in any garden or patio setting.
