Pendant Light A330S “Golden Bell“ by Alvar Aalto for Artek

Description / details

Pendant Light A330S “Golden Bell“ is a timeless pendant lamp designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek. The pendant light has a sculptural quality that can be appreciated whether the light is switched on or off. Casting golden reflections, the perforated rim of Pendant Light A330S creates a memorable halo effect and prevents glare. Made from a single piece of brass or steel, the elegant “Golden Bell” was created by Aino and Alvar Aalto for the interior of The Savoy Restaurant, Helsinki in 1937 and went on to be shown in the Finnish Pavilion of the Paris World Expo the same year. The “Golden Bell” embodies Alvar Aalto’s signature streamlined aesthetic, while the light it provides is both warm-toned and characteristically diffuse.
