Pair of ceiling lamps model A1967 designed by Paavo Tynell for Taito Oy,
Finland, 1940s

Brass, glass and slatted wood shade.


Paavo Tynell founded his own lighting company Taito Oy in 1918. Tynell was an industrial designer, often referred to as ‘the man who illuminated Finland’ through his world-renowned and extremely sought-after work, formed mostly from perforated and polished brass.

This particular pair of lamps consists of slatted wood shades - a design style that came about in the early 1940’s as a consequence of the rationing of brass in Finland.
