Pendant luminaire with brass ring
The AMA500 pendant luminaire by Aino Aalto and Alvar Aalto for Artek is classic as well as timeless in its design and convinces with its Scandinavian look and functionality.
The AMA500 is suitable as a pendant luminaire over a desk or dining table and provides a soft and glare-free light in any room. A nice detail is the decorative brass ring at the top, which lets a little light through and reflects it beautifully on the ring.
Steel luminaire for Villa Mairea
Alvar Aalto believed that the purpose of architecture is "to bring the material world into harmony with human life" . This design philosophy is particularly well reflected in the Villa Mairea. Villa Mairea was designed by the Aaltos for their friend and Artek co-founder Maire Gullichsen and her husband Harry and is considered one of the great masterpieces of architecture of the 20. Century. The lighting played a major role in the villa and the original AMA500 in dark green is still in the library of the house.
The lamp is made of steel and brass and is available in classic white or in the deep original green.
