gregg wall lamp

Design Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, 2007
Mouth-blown glass
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The Gregg series is a combined expression of character and simplicity. Through the personality of the shape, elegant and natural, its distinguishing feature lies in its deviation from pure geometry. Gregg demonstrates that a traditional material such as glass can free itself of standard solutions to provide original alternatives to a target in search of originality and style.

Gregg Features a white, satin-finished mouth-blown glass diffuser which envelopes the light source and offers outstanding light diffusion. The varying sizes and variants available make this a versatile and transverse series ideal for all settings.

Ludovica + Roberto Palomba are a group of architects and designers based in Milan, Italy. They primarily deal with architecture, industrial design, exhibit design, art direction, communications and marketing consulting.

Gregg is available in three sizes and also available as table, suspension and ceiling lamps. Suitable for damp locations.

Riccardo Olivieri set up Foscarini Spa in Murano in 1981. Two years later, they debuted their catalog, with lamps from Carlo Urbinati and Allesandro Vecchiato, who would become the company's managers by 1988. Eventually these new owners would move the company off the island and into Venice, as well as transition Foscarini from a glassworks shop to a major design competitor. They had already begun working with external designers in 1985, but their first success came in 1990 with Rodolfo Dordoni's "Lumiere" Most all lighting projects were made of glass until 1993, at which point the Havana lamp primarily used polyethylene, making it lighter, more cost-effective, and able to be used indoors and outdoors. It now resides in the MoMA in New York. Other successful lamps would come to define the company, such as the "Mite & Tite" series by Marc Sadler in 2000 (which earned a Compasso d'oro), Patricia Urquiola's 2005 "Caboche" and Marc Sadler's signature lamp "Twiggy."
