Paavo Tynell Pendant Lamps Model ‘9060’ in Brass


Paavo Tynell, pendant lights model ‘9060’, brass, Finland, 1950/52

Finnish designer Paavo Tynell designed the lamp 9060 for the office of a general at the United Nations building in NYC. Typical for Tynell’s iconic light designs is the way the perforated brass shade in a beautiful and extremely well-balanced form. In this case the pair of ‘9060’ pendants have a characteristic shade opening towards the ceiling, mounted with a V-shaped bar ending in a round fixation. Due to the round gap with light diffusers the light shines downwards too. The shade is perforated with a pattern of tiny dots. When the lamp is switched on the light shines through the shade in an unparalleled manner.

Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was born in Finland and started to work as a tin smith and from there onwards became a blacksmith. From this trade he slowly came into the craft of making and designing lamp. He was co-founder of Taito ab, a lamp manufacturer. A turning point for Tynell's career when he started to collaborate with Finland House in New York, a gallery that promoted Finnish design in New York. His designs were drastically different from those of all American designers and became very popular, this resulted in large experimental works that Tynell is now famous for. Tynell's designs are characterized by organic forms and the use of perforated brass.
