1965 & A1965 pendants

design Paavo Tynell

The 1965 pendant was originally designed by Paavo Tynell in 1947. Like many of his best-known designs, the pendant was designed for the Finland House in New York - one of the most ambitious and successful projects of all time to showcase Finnish design. Perfecting the techniques of metal finishes, Tynell developed the 1965 pendant with his exceptional ability to capture and translate a grace and exuberant lightness into his brass creations. Characterized by its triangular perforation pattern, an artistic detail utilised by Tynell in several of his lighting objects, the 1965 pendant reflects the distinguished craftsmanship of the Finnish designer. With a frosted glass diffuser that softens the light, the pendant contributes to a subtle and tranquil environment.

Paavo Tynell

Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was a Finnish industrial designer specializing in lighting design. Paavo Tynell began his career in Helsinki at the beginning of the 20th century in a Finnish metal art forge company, Tynell qualified as a master craftsman in 1913. At the same time, he studied at Taideteollisuus Keskuskoulu (today the Helsinki University of industrial arts), where he eventually worked as a teacher.

In 1918, Paavo Tynell founded his own company Oy Taito Ab with Gösta Serlachius, Emil Wickström, Eric Ehrström and Frans Nykänen. Taito Oy began to focus more on lamps during the 1930s, with Paavo Tynell as chief designer and CEO. 

In 1953, the majority of Oy Taito Ab was purchased by another Finnish lighting company, Idman Oy.Tynell continued to draw regularly for Idman until the early 1960s and the company continued to produce the most popular lamp ever designed by Tynell, a square-shaped "starry sky" ceiling lamp, until the late 1970s. Paavo Tynell lived permanently in Tuusula, Finland, where he eventually died in 1973.
