A mid-century modern design by Alvar Aalto, the Artek Floor Lamp A808 plays with shape and dimension, a tiered shade forming layers of light. The strong metal shade is softened not only by its rounded shape, but by the leather-wrapped stem and base, available in a balanced Black or calming White.
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.
