Design by Alvar Aalto.By Artek.
As a child, Alvar Aalto is known to have admired filtered light "just like the sunlight filtering through grandma's lace curtains on a summer's day."
The shade of A805 is made of thin painted metal strips that prevent glare by diffusing light evenly. The asymmetrical shape is reminiscent of an angel's wing. The white painted, hand-riveted, louvered steel shade makes a bold statement with grace and simplicity.

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
