As an architect and designer, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) should be celebrated for bringing Scandinavian modernism to global prominence. His sensitivity to the natural world, organic forms and materials tempered the hardness of rationalism. The A335B pendant lamp was designed by Aalto in 1956. Perhaps best known for its distinctive pierced underside, it was made from pressed steel and fast became a staple of Finnish design. It appears in the Alvar Aalto museum. No longer in production, they are now scarce. Produced late 60s, this one retains the original paint and Artek sticker intact on the internal rim. This lamp is in great condition, no yellowing. It has been rewired with a long flex and PAT tested.
