Originally designed for Finland's University of Jyväskylä in 1953, Alvar Aalto's A331 Pendant is one of his most recognisable and beloved pendant light designs. As the name suggests, the A331 Beehive light was inspired by a beehive's layered structure, which is reflected in its organic form. Featuring polished brass or chrome plated rings which filter and diffuse the light softly around the room, it conveys a sense of weightlessness and ethereal beauty reminiscent of a mobile ornament.

With its distinct but minimal design, the A331 Beehive can be used in various spaces from the kitchen, dining room and office to other public environments. Constructed from hand-spun aluminium with steel rings, the A331 Beehive is an iconic and styish lighting design ensuring warm and diffused light when illuminated.

The A331 Beehive is available in three different finishes.

His buildings derive their aesthetic character from their dynamic relationship with natural surroundings, their human scale, well-executed details, unique treatment of materials, and innovative use of lighting.
