Pendant Light A330S Golden Bell

Size Guide

Warm, Diffused Light

A Placewares Favorite

Alvar Aalto, 1937

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, the perforated rim of Pendant Light A330S creates a memorable corona effect and prevents glare. Made from a single piece of brass or steel, the elegant “Golden Bell” was created by Aino and Alvar Aalto for the interior of The Savoy Restaurant, Helsinki in 1937 and went on to be shown in the Finnish Pavilion of the Paris World Expo the same year. The “Golden Bell” embodies Alvar Aalto’s signature streamlined aesthetic, while the light it provides is both warm-toned and characteristically diffuse.

Hand-spun brass gives Golden Bell its golden shimmer

Originally designed for Restaurant Savoy in Helsinki, where the original pendants are still in place today

The Savoy version of "Golden Bell" ages gracefully, with time gaining a beautiful patina
