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 A110 Pendant Lamp is one of Aalto's designs. The Hand Grenade lamp was designed for the building of the Finnish Engineers' Association. The same model was used in the Council Chamber of Säynätsalo Town Hall.
A110 provides direct illumination and can work well for task lighting over counter tops. Use alone or create visual impact with several A110 pendants.
