Floor lamp with Angel-Like Shade
The A805 floor lamp by Artek is made of steel like many of Alvar Aalto’s other lamps. The steel creates a special light effect, typical of the work by the Finnish designer.
The lamp is a mid-century design from 1954, which received its name because of the asymmetric lamp shade which is reminiscent of angel wings.
Steel & Leather
The floor lamp is made of white painted steel and then riveted by hand. The steel strips of the wall lamp are so thin that light can easily shine through the shade. The stand and the base made of steel are covered with black leather. The elegant floor lamp by Aalto looks beautiful next to a sofa or a desk and emits a warm light that illuminates the entire room.
The connecting piece between the stand and the shade as well as the on and off switch are made of brass or nickel.
