Unveiled in 1947 at the Finland House in New York, the A1965 Pendant was an instant success for Paavo Tynell and one of the lighting fixtures considered to define his mid-century peak. It delicately holds some of his most distinctive design traits; the perforated and polished brass material combined with a unique lift mechanism, raising and lowering the lamp to different heights. The A1965 Pendant  gracefully diffuses the light downwards through frosted glass, omitting glare whilst gently illuminating the room. The hanging counterweighted A1965 Pendant was Tynell’s attempt to add lighting mobility to the ceiling fixture and combing the advantages of the portable and the installed lamp. The impeccable construction of the A1965 Pendant fully reveals Paavo Tynell’s knack for elevating ordinary light fixtures into functional art and this remarkable style played a significant role in shaping the aesthetic of mid-century lighting.

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”. Tyne was one of the founders and chief designers of Taito Oy – the first industrial producer of lighting fixtures in Finland. With the innovation of electricity in the beginning of the 20th century, Taito Oy and Tynell expanded the thinking and manufacturing of modern lighting solutions in Europe and abroad. 

Tynell rose to prominence in the 1930s and 40s where he collaborated with some of the most renowned Finnish architects, Alvar Aalto being the most notable one. Working to incorporate artificial lighting into modern environments, Tynell’s company Taito Oy produced fixtures for all of Alvar Aalto’s major projects including the Paimio Sanatorium and the Viipuri Library. 

Today his lamps and lighting are highly sought after by an international clientele of collectors and prices of his most important pieces have lately soared on auctions.
