Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto began designing furnishings as early as the 1920's. They were a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. To Aalto, a piece of furniture was not simply an isolated object in space. He was a comprehensive artist in the architectural and design fields who focused his attention on even the smallest of details.

Artek was established in 1935 to market his furniture, lamps and fabrics. A long tradition as a manufacturer of outstanding articles for daily use has made Artek an internationally known and recognized quality design brand.

Aalto's beautiful and functional furniture is still very popular around the world in spite of changing styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful, just the right scale for over dining table Two of these over a dining table are modern without being showy. They are an in between size that you don't often find too so two of them look just the right size over a 6 to 8 foot dining table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic minimalist pendant Received my A110 Pendant Light two weeks ago now and I love it. The design looks great without attracting too much attention to itself. Simple and modern. And the light emitted is perfect too. Was a little concerned that it might cast some shadows, but it doesn't at all. Using it as our dining room light fixture and it emits just enough light.

I'm in an apartment and have no way to connect and draw power from wiring in the ceiling. Therefore I'd like to hang the light on a hook of sorts and run the cord down the wall and plug it in. Does it have a plug? Is this possible? 

Asked by: mchall
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. Typically all of the pendants that we carry are intended for hardwired installation directly into a J-box in your ceiling, including this particular fixture. Probably the best bet would be to look for a shade with a similar look that is connected to a long extension cord, which you would then be able to swag and connect to an outlet elsewhere in the room. To give you an idea of how this sort of configuration may look, check out the "Wireflow Free-Form Pendant Light" by Vibia, which offers a ton of customization possibilities. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service
