Pendant Light A201 was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1952 for the library of Säynätsalo Town Hall in central Finland. Composed of formed sheet steel, Pendant Light A201 possesses a sculptural presence; its beauty can be appreciated whether switched on or off. The light exiting the lower and upper part of the shade creates a beautiful halo, typical to Aalto who sought to make artificial light as indirect and soft as possible. The A201 is available in standard white with brass details and in a limited edition dark red version, inspired by the triple variation of the light (A203) hanging above the dining table in the Aaltos’ private Helsinki home.
