Artek Lighting

Artek was established by the architect Alvar Aalto, his wife Aino, art historian Nils-Gustav Hahl and visual arts promoter Maire Gullichsen in Finland in 1935.

The goal of the group was to ‘sell furniture and promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.’

The name ‘Artek’ was intended to represent the combination of art and technology and the Artek lighting collection includes pieces designed by both Finnish and international designers.

The Artek lighting collection is central to this design vision with a combination of aesthetic beauty and lighting technology. Aalto left a design legacy and his ingenious lighting designs are still popular today.

The Artek Beehive pendant lamp is a striking piece of artwork for any room - even when unlit. The sculptural design is unique. Available in two metallic shades, this highly desirable statement piece will immediately turn heads.

Alvar Aalto also designed the striking Artek A110 Hand Grenade ceiling lamp. This Artek light features a perforated, brass steel plated ring which diffuses the light downwards. Like many Artek pendant lamps, this lamp makes an impact when a number are hung together.

The glamorous and iconic Golden Bell design of the Artek A330S pendant lamp was designed for the Savoy Restaurant in Helsinki in 1936. Made from a single piece of brass, this piece is spectacular and designed to captivate. It was shown at the Paris World Expo in 1937.

Another prominent piece is the Artek A809 floor lamp which was designed for the living room of French gallerist Louis Carré. This splendid floor lamp will add sophistication and lighting ambience to any room.

The Artek A910 wall lamp features staggered thin metal sheets which is a common theme among Aalto’s many lamps. The shape of this Artek lamp allows light to shine both upwards and downwards. This chic, minimalist design is timeless.
