First produced around 1950, the 9205 is a classic, almost archetypal, table lamp with an unmistakable Tynell aesthetic. Elegant and slender, the lamp’s apparently simple form conceals an extraordinary degree of craftsmanship and highly skilled hand-making. 

The canvas model's shade is constructed by attaching the fabric to a liner, which is then manually fixed onto a wire frame, while the bamboo is made from a series of slats first sewn together by hand to form a pleated mat before being connected to the liner and frame a contemporary update to the ryegrass cane used in Taito’s original model. The stem is milled with a rattan-like pattern, created by a metalsmith using a lathe with great precision and attention to detail to mimic the effect of a series of overlapping strips. A brass plate, screwed into the stem, keeps the shade in place.

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.
