A809 floor lamp in Alvar Aalto's studio

This Floor Light features three hand-riveted shades, each formed from delicate, lacquered metal strips, which together present a striking combination of lines and curves. Floor Light A809 allows for different levels of brightness and the interplay of direct and indirect light. The stand is finished in hand-sewn black leather, while the neck has a polished brass collar.

 

Floor Light A809 was created for the living room of the house near Paris designed by Alvar Aalto for French gallerist and collector Louis Carré in 1959.
