The hand-sewn parchment shades sit on specialty Finnish satin glass discs, sanded on the inside and glossy on the outside to subtly diffuse the light. This kind of detail is reminiscent of Paavo Tynell's experience, not only in creating sculptural light-pieces, but also in giving as much attention to the way light is cast. A mark of masters such as Gino Sarfatti, Gio Ponti, Hans-Agne Jakobsson and Oscar Torlasco to name a few.

Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was the Chief designer and co-founder of Oy Taito Ab in 1918, Finland's major lighting company. The company was famous for light pieces designed by important designers like Alvar Aalto and Kaj Frank. After the company was sold to Idman in 1953. Paavo Tynell then started to work at mass produced lighting in the USA for Lightolier and Litecraft.

Paavo Tynell's distinctive style inspired by nature has been highly influential on international design. He has collaborated with prominent architects such as Alvar Aalto and Eero Saarinen. Today he's more famous in the West for his later designs, mass produced for the American lighting company Lightolier, brass fixtures with perforated shades in vegetal-like dotted lines.

This 9015 chandelier was made in a workshop in Finland in the 1940s, part of a small batch with finer materials and greater craftsmanship than the later mass produced Ligholier and Litecraft designs at the end of his career. The classicism of this piece speaks volumes.
