Floor Light A805 features a hand-riveted shade formed from delicate, lacquered metal strips. It presents a striking combination of lines and curves while allowing for different levels of brightness and the interplay of direct and indirect light. A polished brass collar provides appealing contrast with the white shade, and the black leather finish of the stand is hand sewn in Finland. The asymmetrical shape is reminiscent of an angel’s wing – hence the nickname. “Angel Wing” was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1954 for the National Pensions Institute in Helsinki.
