Paavo Tynell for Taito, floor lamp model '9628', brass, cane, Finland, 1950s
Outstanding floor lamp designed by Paavo Tynell, the Finnish design master of lighting. This delicate floor lamp has a few distinct features. The conical polished brass lampshade features delicate perforated and elongated slots on the rim. The light from within the shade shines through these small slots, creating a gorgeous aesthetic effect. Because the brass shaft of the lamp is covered in cane, the lamp has a warm and natural element to it. The base is flat and round and gives the floor lamp a stable, light designed stand.
Finnish designer Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) began his career as a blacksmith. After studying to become a master craftsman at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, he founded his own manufacturing company named Taito Oy. During his career, he collaborated with fellow Finnish designers and architects such as Alvar Aalto. Their collaboration proved to be very fruitful and achieved Tynell’s reputation of “the man who illuminated Finland.” Tynell’s international design influence grew thanks to the Finland House located in New York and allowed him to see himself trusted with prestigious orders both for public buildings such as the UN but also for important private collections. Based on existing models, the wealthiest families in Finland ordered custom versions.
