Poly Gregg Table / Floor Lamp from Foscarini
The Gregg Poly Lamp retains the striking organic shape and same soft white light emitted by the highly successful Gregg Lamp but comes with one key difference; the glass diffuser of the Gregg has been replaced by a shade made from polyethylene. This allows for a cheaper alternative to the original Gregg, but more importantly for us it allows the lamp to be used outdoors.
