Artek A805 Floor Lamp

Alvar Aalto , 1954


Hand-riveted, white painted louvered steel base and stand covered with black leather, black plastic cable 2,5 m upper part polished brass

The shade of this 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.
