The A805 Floor Lamp was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1954. The shade of A805 Floor Lamp is made of thin painted metal strips that prevent glare by diffusing light evenly. The asymmetrical shape is reminiscent of an angel's wing – hence the nickname.
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.
