A110 Hand Grenade Pendant Lamp by Alvar Aalto for Artek29100123
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. “Hand Grenade” was designed for the building Alvar Aalto created for the Finnish Engineers’ Association.
