Alvar Aalto (1898 – 1976) is at the very top of the list of Finnish designer’s who’s work I admire the most. From furniture and textiles to glassware and architecture he created some of the timeless cornerstones of Finnish design.

Today, the lamps can be bought at Artek in a few different colors and materials. I’d love a pair of the original golden ones for the livingroom. Pictures: Artek and
