Tynell’s original 1972 Pendant featured a shade made from slats of Finnish aspen. This has been updated to bamboo – a material that shares the visual quality, durability, and flexibility of aspen, but which is fast-growing and therefore more rapidly renewable. Similar to the other Tynell lamps 9205 and 9602, the bamboo slats are hand sewn into a pleated mat and fastened by hand to the wire frame, with a linen liner in between.
A central core keeps the shade in place, a polished brass canopy sits at the top of the wire, connecting the light to the ceiling. Below the bulb, a fabric diffuser modulates the light and, beneath this, a decorative brass detail gives each lamp a flourish of character, and subtly influences the play of light it generates.
Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was an industrial designer, known as the great pioneer of Finnish lighting design and fondly dubbed as “the man who illuminated Finland”. Throughout 2023, GUBI explores and celebrates the legacy of Paavo Tynell with the launch of seven masterpieces.
