The A201 Pendant Lamp Design by Alvar Aalto for Artek
Artek’s A201 is a clean-lined, stylish pendant made up of two steel cylinders and a perforated brass ring. The pendant, designed by Alvar Aalto, reflects light through both the upper and lower parts to create an effect similar to sunlight – in addition to a warm glow, the lamp provides downward illumination. The brass ring adds an elegant finishing touch while also preventing glare. Like many of Alvar Aalto’s lighting designs, A201 was designed for a specific building, namely the Säynätsalo townhall library located in Central Finland.
The limited edition dark red A201 lamp was inspired by the colour of the A203 lamp hanging above the dining table of Alvar and Aino Aaltos’ home in Helsinki.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
