A1965 Pendant


The A1965 Pendant was an instant success for Paavo Tynell and a lighting system planned to assess its height at the middle of the century, it was opened in the Finland House in NY in 1948. The coated and polished metal structure with a special lifting mechanism lifts and lowers the lamp in various heights, and it purposely has the most distinctive design features. The A1965 Pendant uses light gracefully through frosted glass, preventing glare when lighting the room softly.

Tynell’s attempt to improve lighting stability of the ceiling and combined the benefits of the lamp and the portable lamp was a hanging counterweighted A1965. Paavo Tynell’s s fine design on the A1965 Pendant shows that ordinary light fixtures have now been elevated into practical art and this remarkable style played an important role in developing the esthetics of lighting in the mid-century.
