Originally designed for 1947’s Finland House exhibit in New York, Paavo Tynell’s pendant remains timeless. With A1965, the designer combines both his signature perforated brass artisanship and mechanical finesse, with a unique mechanism to raise and lower the lamp to different heights. The light is diffused downwards through frosted glass, for a glare-free and gentle glow.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
