9602 FLOOR LAMP
BY PAAVO TYNELL
Elegantly capturing Paavo Tynell’s affinity with beautiful material combinations in its juxtaposition of rattan and polished brass, the 9602 Floor Lamp is one of the designer’s most loved lamp designs. First developed for Finland’s Hotel Aulanko in 1935, the lamp earned the nickname ‘the Chinese hat’ for the shape of its large, playful shade.
PIERRE FREY SPECIAL EDITION
In this GUBI x Pierre Frey special edition of the 9602 Floor Lamp, GUBI brings together two masters of 20th-century design – the Finnish lighting maestro Paavo Tynell, and the renowned Parisian textile house Maison Pierre Frey. To honor Tynell's groundbreaking 9602 Floor Lamp, GUBI embarked on an exclusive partnership with Maison Pierre Frey. Recognizing their expertise in crafting fabrics perfect for lighting, this collaboration birthed a fresh and fantastical rendition of one of Tynell's most celebrated pieces.
Complementing the 9602 Floor Lamp's distinctive rattan-wrapped stem with another natural material, the different shades present nuanced contrasts to the polished brass that forms the base and the conical crown of the shade, tying the design together.
