Alvar Aalto for Valaistustyö, floor lamp 'A805', metal, leather and brass, Finland, 1954.

Early Angel's Wing floor lamp by Alvar Aalto. Originally designed for the National Pensions Institute in Helsinki. The louvered shade of this floor lamp is made of thin painted metal strips that prevent glare by diffusing light evenly. The asymmetrical shape is reminiscent of wings– hence the nickname 'Angel's Wing'. The base and stem are leather-wrapped accompanied with brass details.
