A110 pendant 

hand grenade


design Alvar Aalto, 1952

This elegant pendant light is nicknamed “Hand Grenade” for its distinctive shape. Composed of a lacquered steel shade and an inner ring, Pendant Light A110 provides an exceptional warm-toned quality of light. “Hand Grenade” projects both direct and indirect light onto ceilings, and its perforated inner ring creates a corona effect around the pendant light while simultaneously reducing glare.
The Hand Grenade lamp was designed for the building of the Finnish Engineers' Association (Alvar Aalto 1948–1953). The same model was used in the Council Chamber of Säynätsalo Town Hall (Alvar Aalto 1949–1952).
