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.See other lights/products from Alvar Aalto

The Alto A110 Pendant Light for Artek was a perfect fit for one of our showroom projects at the mart. It's simple design provided a non obtrusive but fucntional effect on the showroom lighting. The item shipped quickly and could not have looked better!

Good design; the finish is clean and the brass accent at the bottom is very effective. It arrived quickly and in attractive Artek packaging.

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.

elegant, classic, yet unusual
We are using two of these pendants in a high end conference space. Very elegant and understated. They fit right in. They are elegant, classic and also unusual. They also give just the right type of downlight for the application.

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.
