A110 Pendant by Alvar Aalto


Ships in 16-24 weeks


When Alvar Aalto designed the A110 pendant in 1952, it was nicknamed the Hand Grenade Light because it resembles the German grenades of the war. It was originally designed for the Finnish Engineers Association and the Council Chamber of Saynatsalo Town Hall. The design acts as a spotlight for direct illumination, with a bit of indirect lit being emitted from the top of the shade. It is available in white or black lacquered aluminum with a removable white, black or polished brass ring. It comes with a color coordinated canopy and cord to match the pendant finish. The 8.2 feet of cord can be cut in the field for the desired length.
