Golden Bell lamps epitomized the pursuit of organic modernism in the 20th century

The Golden Bell lamps were created for the elegant, luxurious Savoy Restaurant in Helsinki, for which Alvar and his wife Aino designed all the interior elements, created a total work of art. They sought a soft and warm light that would complement the food and the diners and achieved this through a rich brass color on both the exterior and the interior of the shade, and a pleasingly organic curving shape. These lamps are extremely rare early examples, dating from the late 1930s or ‘40s and were made by the original manufacturer Taito Oy.
