Paavo Tynell’s sleek pendant was designed for the 1947 exhibit Finland House in New York, a pathbreaking view into Finnish design. Known for his distinctive metal treatments, 1965 exemplifies Tynell’s graceful way with brass, especially in the signature triangular perforated pattern. The fixture’s frosted-glass diffuser softens the light, spreading a warm and glare-free illumination.

“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.”
