ARTEK A331 Beehive pendant brick red - brass

Artek A331 Beehive brick red - limited edition.

The A331 ceiling lamp, also known as the Beehive, is one of Aalto's classics. For Alvar Aalto, lighting design and architecture went together. Most Aalto's lamps are part of a larger architectural plan. In Aalto's lighting we can find the same principles as in his architecture.

When planning rooms, a big attention was put on where windows had to be placed and on light illuminating the room. In the Beehive lamp, we can clearly see a reference to this characteristic of Aalto's architecture. The lamp has a structure which allows the light to be diffused through the brass elements that join the aluminium sheets.

About the designer:

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is probably the most famous Finnish architect and designer in the world. In 1921, Alvar Aalto obtained a degree in Architecture from the Helsinki Institute of Technology and began his career as an architect.

One of the most important works he was commissioned was the planning of the tuberculosis sanatorium in Paimio, Finland. This project also marked the beginning of Aalto's career as a furniture designer - in fact this was the first building planned by Aalto to be completely furnished with furniture designed by Aalto himself - including the lighting.

Other major projects completed by Alvar Aalto include the Municipal Library of Viipuri, Villa Mairea, La Maison Carré, and the Finnish pavilions for the 1937 Paris and 1939 New York World Expositions.
