Unveiled in 1947 at the Finnish House in New York, Gubi's A1965 pendant light was an instant success for Paavo Tynell and one of the lamps that defined the high point of the mid-century. It retains some of its most distinctive design features; the perforated and polished brass material combined with a unique mechanism that allows the lamp to be raised and lowered to different heights. The A1965 pendant system diffuses light gracefully downwards through the frosted glass, without glare, while gently illuminating the room. Gubi's A1965 counterweight pendant light was Tynell's attempt to add mobility to the ceiling mount and combine the benefits of both portable and fixed lamps. The impeccable execution of the A1965 pendant light fully reveals Paavo Tynell's talent for elevating ordinary lights to the level of functional art.
