A809 Floor Lamp by Artek

Made for the French artist, Louis Carre, who focused on abstract art, the Artek A809 Floor Lamp was designed to illuminate Carre's living room (Alvar Aalto 1956-1958). Three hand-riveted, louvered steel shades are controlled with independent pull cords, and the base and column are covered in Black leather. The varied shades allow for a unique lightscape as light funnels through larger and smaller holes.

Founded in Finland in 1935 by four self-proclaimed idealists, Artek stands strong on the company's ethics, product aesthetics and ecology. With products that offer the Scandinavian look--clean lines, minimal fluff--Artek has built a line that incorporates a modern, approachable appeal into modern furniture and lighting design.

The Artek A809 Floor Lamp is available with the following:

  • 3 White louvered steel shades
  • Base and stand covered with black leather
  • 97.2" plastic cable
  • Designed by Alvar Aalto, 1959
Three 100 Watt 120 Volt Type E27 Incandescent lamps (not included) or three 20 Watt 120 Volt Type E27 Compact Fluorescent lamps (not included).
