Notes from the Archive: Aalto was fascinated by filtered light and in many of his designs for lighting he developed arrangements of metal louvers. In this floor lamp the concentric louvers direct light downward as the upper shade casts its own glow. An elegant and sophisticated lighting solution for any interior.
