Description

Golden Bell Savoy is a new version of A330S pendant launched in 2017 for the 80th anniversary of the Restaurant Savoy in Helsinki. The Golden Bell pendant was originally designed by Alvar Aalto for the Restaurant Savoy in 1937. Like the other A330S pendants, Golden Bell Savoy is made of one single piece of brass, but its polished surface has been left uncoated, so over time, it will develop a beautiful and unique patina. Unpolished inside of the lamp creates a warmer light than the other models of the series. The pendant is equipped with a brass canopy and a black textile cable, and it resembles closely Aalto's first versions of the A330S lamps which are still in use at Restaurant Savoy.

Designing lights had a central part in Alvar Aalto's work – for him lighting played an important role in architecture. Lamps were a part of the whole that he wanted to control to the smallest detail. Many of Aalto's lights were originally created for a particular building. The elegant A330S pendant combines Alvar Aalto's typical streamlined design and the characteristic diffused light.

Alvar Aalto

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is probably the most famous Finnish architect and designer in the world. In 1921 Alvar Aalto got the Diploma of Architecture at the Helsinki Institute of Technology and his career as an architect started. One of the most important works he was commissioned was the planning of the tuberculosis sanatorium in Paimio, Finland. This project meant also the beginning of Aalto’s career as a furniture designer – in fact, this was the first building planned by Aalto which was entirely furnished with pieces of furniture designed by Aalto himself – including the lighting as well. Other important projects completed by Alvar Aalto are the Viipuri Municipal Library, Villa Mairea, La Maison Carré and the Finnish Pavilions for the 1937 Paris and 1939 New York World Fairs.

In 1935 Alvar Aalto, together with Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl, founded Artek, a world-renowned furniture and lighting company. The company was created "to sell furniture" – designed by Alvar Aalto – "and to promote modern culture of habitation by exhibitions and other means". 

One of the most ingenious innovations by Alvar Aalto is the L-leg, patented in 1933. Aalto considered his L-leg design his greatest achievement and even compared it to the invention of the architectonic column. Thanks to this innovation, the legs could be attached directly to the table, chair and stool tops. Alvar Aalto was a versatile designer whose work covered different fields. He is well-known also for his elegant lamps, which very often were designed for individual construction projects and later on adapted for the serial production. Alvar Aalto was also an esteemed glass designer and his most famous work as a glass designer is the Aalto vase (or Savoy vase) – one of the most iconic glassware pieces in Finnish design.

    Tuote on laadukas ja sellainen kuin oletin. Valaisimen made in China oli pettymys, mieluummin maksaisin vaikka hieman enemmän ettö saisin suomessa valmistetun laadukkaan valaisimen. Olisihan suomessa valmistettu valaisin myös kunnianosoitus suunnittelijaa kohtaan.
