Pair of wall lamps model ‘9459’ designed by Paavo Tynell for Oy Taito,
Finland, 1960s.


Engraved ‘OY TAITO AB’

The combination of cylindrical lampshades and square-shaped switch housings makes this elegant pair of Nordic wall lights particularly intriguing. With adjustable lighting angles, the brass lamps are both practical and sophisticated.

Paavo Tynell is one of the most important 20th-century lighting designers. He was a trained sheet metal worker, doubtlessly influencing his unparalleled feel for shaping brass. The company Oy Taito was founded by Tynell himself because other manufacturers considered his creations too complex for production.
