The initial model of the Artek A622 Ceiling Lamp was introduced when Aalto was designing the lighting for the National Pensions Institute (Alvar Aalto 1953-1956). Its minimalist look and contemporary appeal make it a great option for both the modern home and office space.
Founded in Finland in 1935 by four self-proclaimed idealists, Artek stands strong on the company's ethics, product aesthetics and ecology. With products that offer the Scandinavian look--clean lines, minimal fluff--Artek has built a line that incorporates a modern, approachable appeal into modern furniture and lighting design.
The A622 Ceiling Lamp is available with the following:
- Three 60 Watt 120 Volt Type E27 Incandescent lamps (not included), or three 11 Watt 120 Volt Type E27 Compact Fluorescent lamps (not included).
- Small Fixture: Height 8.7", Diameter 18.1"
- Large Fixture: Height 10.2", Diameter 22.4"
