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. One of my personal favorites is the “Kultakello” (Bell) lamp  which was born in the late 1930’s when Aalto was working on the interior design for the Savoy restaurant in Helsinki together with his wife Aino. 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 Furniture-Love.com
