Artek A805 Floor Lamp
A805 Floor Lamp by Artek is a 20.5" shade and is constructed out of hand turned and painted white steel. The base and stem are partially covered in black leather with either brass or nickel accents. A highly architectural design, clean lines and a soft, diffused lighting create a fixture that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The Artek A805 Floor Lamp was designed by Alvar Aalto: "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."

About Artek and Alvar Aalto
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.
