9209 Table Lamp

799 €

One of the great industrial designers and metal craftsmen of the 20th century, Tynell came into the world at precisely the right time to become one of the pioneers of modern lighting; as the electric light spread across the world, so too did Tynell’s design visions. The 9209 has a distinctively shaped shade in spun brass that has led to it being referred to as the ‘Kypärä’ – the Finnish word for ‘helmet’. Held in place by a curved brass arm, the individually molded shade is decorated with triangular patterns of perforation – a Tynell decorative signature – which requires a specialist punch tool and the utmost precision to achieve by hand. As well as guiding the light downward, thanks to the holes punched in the surface, the shade also allows pinpricks of light through, creating a soft, textured glow and a starlight-like sparkle.
