About

Paavo Tynell for Oy Taito Ab, table lamp, brass, cane, iron, Finland, 1930s Early Paavo Tynell table lamp designed for Taito. This esquisite table lamp already holds all the characteristics of a true Tynell design. The slim stem covered in cane, the circular brass foot that has a great patina, and the perfectly proportioned lampshade, providing a soft diffused light. The heavy foot is made of cast iron with bras and has a clear cast TAITO mark underneath.  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. VAT within the EU: When buying or delivering an item within the EU, VAT usually applies and will be added.
