A110 Pendant Light “Hand Grenade”

A110 Pendant Light “Hand Grenade”
by Artek

Designed by
Alvar Aalto
for Artek 1952

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 halo effect around the pendant light while simultaneously reducing glare. “Hand Grenade” was designed for the building Alvar Aalto created for the Finnish Engineers’ Association.
