Floor Light A811 - Tube Nickel Plated BrassArtek –
Combining a polished brass collar with a black leather stand, the A811 features a single hand-turned shade made of delicate, lacquered metal strips that prevent glare by diffusing light evenly. The A811 was the last addition to Alvar Aalto’s range of floor lights. While similar in form and function to the lighting created for the National Pensions Institute, Helsinki in the 1950s, Floor Light A811 didn’t come into being until 1965.
