1972 Pendant

2 499 €

Designed by the legendary Paavo Tynell, the 1972 pendant features a conical shade in bamboo, crafted by master artisans. The the bamboo slats are hand sewn into a pleated mat and fastened by hand to the wire frame, with a linen liner in between. This directs light down towards the base and creates a diffuse glow around the shade and upward, as the bamboo slats are penetrated by the light. Tynell's signature brass details are present as well, adding an air of timelessness and perfectly complementing the warm tone of the wood and light. Below the bulb, a fabric diffuser modulates the light and, beneath this, a decorative brass detail gives each lamp a flourish of character, and subtly influences the play of light it generates.

A MASTERFUL LIGHT DESIGN

Meticulously hand-sewn bamboo slats create a beautifully pleated mat, secured by hand to the wire frame and adorned with a delicate linen liner in between. This thoughtful arrangement guides the light gracefully downward, while simultaneously crafting a mesmerizing diffuse glow around the shade and upward as the light gently permeates through the bamboo slats.
