About

Paavo Tynell for Taito, model K10, floorlamp, lacquered metal, brass, cane, Finland, 1950s Outstanding floor lamp, designed by Paavo Tynell, the Finnish design master of lighting. This delicate floor lamp has a few distinct features. The conical golden lampshade features delicate perforated and elongated slots on the rim. The light from within the shade shines through these small slots, creating great aesthetic effect. The brass shaft of the lamp is covered in cane adding a warm and natural element to the metal lamp. The base is flat and round and gives the floor lamp a stabile, light designed stand. Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was born in Finland and started to work as a tin smith and from there onwards became a blacksmith. From this trade he slowly came into the Craft of making and designing lamp. He was co-founder of Taito ab, a lamp manufacturer. A turning point for Tynell's career when he started to collaborate with Finland House in New York, a gallery that promoted Finnish design in New York. His designs were drastically different from those of all American designers and became very popular, this resulted in large experimental works that Tynell is now famous for. Tynell's designs are characterized by organic forms and the use of perforated brass.
