9464 Wall Lamp

design Paavo Tynell

The 9464 Wall Lamp, designed in 1947 by Paavo Tynell, is a great example on how the Finnish designer elevated illumination into an art form. The clean, sculptured brass shade lends an air of elegance with Tynell’s distinctive traits of twin dot perforation pattern combined with notched edges, making the wall lamp appealing and admirable in all its simplicity. Equally relevant today as when first introduced, the 9464 Wall Lamp fits perfectly into contemporary interiors, adding a sculptural effect to the wall whilst simultaneously creating a relaxed yet very refined indirect lighting. Available with brass shade. Glass diffuser at the bottom softens the light downwards. Brass coloured cord.

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.
