new nature floor lamp
"This high investment, highly developed product plays with fluid botanic geometries to define a new light condition in space, casting intersecting light and shadow onto walls and surfaces in a very three dimensional way." -Ross Lovegrove
New Nature is a floor lamp offering indirect and diffused lighting. It features a thermoplastic body with a chrome-plated steel base. There is a dual control, located on the cord which allows for the independent operation of the two light sources. The indirect light is dimmable and the diffused light is on/off.
