Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), one of the founders of Artek, was born in Kuortane, Finland. He is recognized today as one of the great masters of modern architecture. He began designing furnishings as a natural and important extension of his architectural thinking. His contribution to furniture design was among his foremost achievements in its own right, and it sowed the seed from which many of his architectural ideas sprang forth. Alvar Aalto's furniture and lighting pieces form the basis of the Artek range. The A810 Floor Lamp is one of Aalto's designs. Floor lamp A810 derives from the same model as its slightly earlier sister model A809. Both lamps were chosen for Villa Kokkonen, the house of the composer Joonas Kokkonen.
