Alvar Aalto design by Artek, 1952.
The Artek A110 pendant, also known as The Hand Grenade Lamp because of its unusual shape, was designed in 1952 for a building belonging to the Finnish association of engineers. Today, its beam of concentrated light also appeals to the general public and the lamps are frequently found in private homes around the world. The pendants are particularly appreciated for illuminating worktops or dining tables.
In 2012, Artek partnered with Mike Meire to add two new color finishes to the collection: cable and ring in red or yellow with contrasting shades in white or black.
