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. A330 Pendant Lamp is one of Aalto's designs. This more complex variation of Golden Bell A330S was designed for large building projects in the 1950s. It was first used in the teachers' canteen named “Lyhty”, at the University of Jyvaskyla.
