1972 Pendant

1972 Pendant


Designed by the legendary Paavo Tynell, the 1972 pendant features a conical shade in bamboo, crafted by master artisans. The the bamboo slats are hand sewn into a pleated mat and fastened by hand to the wire frame, with a linen liner in between. This directs light down towards the base and creates a diffuse glow around the shade and upward. 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. The Ø90 variant of this pendant has a grandeur of scale that can make it a true centrepiece of even large spaces. Manufactured by Gubi, Denmark

Paavo Tynell (1890–1973) was born in Helsinki 12 years after the invention of the domestic lightbulb – a time when Finland, like most of northern Europe, was yet to be electrified. Tynell came into the world at precisely the right time to become one of the pioneers of modern lighting; as the electric light spread across the world, so too did Tynell’s design visions. By the time he died in 1973, Tynell was known, fondly, as ‘the man who illuminated Finland’. Shop Designer >
