It delicately holds some of his most distinctive design traits; the perforated and polished brass material combined with a unique lift mechanism, raising and lowering the lamp to different heights. The A1965 Pendant gracefully diffuses the light downwards through frosted glass, omitting glare whilst gently illuminating the room. The hanging counterweighted A1965 Pendant was Tynell’s attempt to add lighting mobility to the ceiling fixture and combing the advantages of the portable and the installed lamp. The impeccable construction of the A1965 Pendant fully reveals Paavo Tynell’s knack for elevating ordinary light fixtures into functional art and this remark- able style played a significant role in shaping the aesthetic of mid-century lighting. This lamp can vary in height by pulling or pushing the lamp or counterweight.
