Artek A110 Suspension Lamp
Alvar Aalto , 1952
Alvar Aalto designed the A110 ceiling lamp, playfully called the Hand Grenade, in 1952. The lamp’s beauty is based on its shape, which is simple and timeless. A110 consists of two cylinders, one inside the other, and the light is reflected upwards at the point where the cylinders meet. As an elegant detail, the lamp features a perforated steel ring which diffuses the downward light in a beautiful manner. As many other lamps designed by Aalto, also the Hand Grenade can be suspended in a group.
