  • Artek - Golden Bell "Savoy" by Alvar Aalto
    True to the original design created by Alvar Aalto for the The Savoy Restaurant in Helsinki in 1937, the new Savoy version of Artek’s “Golden Bell” is crafted from a single piece of brass with an uncoated surface that will age gracefully over time....

  • Nicknamed “Golden Bell,” Pendant Light A330S has a sculptural quality that can be appreciated whether the light is switched on or off. Casting golden reflections, its perforated rim creates a memorable corona effect and prevents glare. The pendant light was created by Alvar Aalto for the interior of The Savoy Restaurant in Helsinki in 1937, whose interior he and Aino were commissioned to design. True to the original design, the new Savoy version of the “Golden Bell” is crafted from a single piece of brass with an uncoated surface that will age gracefully over time. Natural oxidation starts right after production, beginning an aging process that will result in a beautiful patina. Embodying Alvar Aalto’s signature streamlined aesthetic, it provides a light that is both warm-toned and characteristically diffuse. Eighty years later, the elegant Savoy restaurant with a view over Helsinki’s rooftops is still home to the iconic pendants. www.artek.fi/stories/elegance-updated
