Product description

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

Concept

In the designing of the pendant lights that form the Artek collection, great attention has been paid to meeting two criteria. Each light should be seen and must satisfy aesthetic demands, while the quality of light cast should be exceptional, bright-toned, and diffuse.
Artek’s pendant lights are united by their sculptural presence, which can be appreciated whether they are illuminated or not.
