The 9602 floor lamp, also known as “Chinese Hat” was designed by Paavo Tynell in 1938 for the finnish hotel Aulanko. Characterised by its elegant and airy lampshade and rattan-covered stem, it shows the designer’s limitless imagination and unparalleled ability to create designs of enduring beauty.
Adding a playful, exuberant quality to the top, balanced by the more static form of the base, this lamp is perfectly suited for creating a gentle ambient light in the domestic living room.
Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was an industrial designer. Known as the great pioneer of Finnish lighting design, Tynell was one of the founders and chief designers of Taito Oy – the first industrial producer of lighting fixtures in Finland. He rose to prominence in the 1930s and 40s where he collaborated with some of the most renowned Finnish architects, Alvar Aalto being the most notable one.
A master craftsman himself, Tynell’s designs were derivative of a traditional aesthetic with a modern sensibility, mixed with an extensive use of perforated and polished brass as material. Marked by delicacy and softness, his most famous forms in lightning echo the structures of nature; he adroitly created sculptural shapes reminiscent of the branches of trees, swirling snowflakes and seashells.
Today Paavo Tynell lamps and lighting are highly sought after by an international clientele of collectors and prices of his most important pieces have lately soared on auctions.
