Unveiled in 1948 at the Finland House in New York, the A1965 Pendant was an instant success for Paavo Tynell and one of the lighting fixtures considered to define his mid-century peak. It delicately holds some of his most distinctive design traits; the perforated and polished brass material combined with a unique lift mechanism, raising and lowering the lamp to different heights. The A1965 Pendant gracefully diffuses the light down- wards through frosted glass, omitting glare whilst gently illuminating the room.
The hanging counterweighted A1965 Pendant was Tynell’s attempt to add lighting mobility to the ceiling fixture and comb- ing the advantages of the portable and the installed lamp. The impeccable construction of the A1965 Pendant fully reveals Paavo Tynell’s knack for elevating ordinary light fixtures into functional art and this remark- able style played a significant role in shaping the aesthetic of mid-century lighting.
Height can vary by pulling or pushing the lamp or counter weight

Gubi was founded in 1967 by Jacob and Sebastian's parents, Gubi and Lisbeth Olsen. They initially focused on producing Olsen's furniture designs and selling textiles to the retail sector. Eager to make their own mark, the sons opened a concept store and introduced fashion into the equation. In fact, they were amongst the first to import Prada and Helmut Lang to Denmark, returning their focus back to the family business in 2001.
Since then, they have transposed the original creative vision into a contemporary context, putting Gubi on the map as a global player on the design scene. In an ever-changing international landscape, it takes an enormous amount of drive and determination to keep chasing icons. It's that type of endless energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit which has catapulted Gubi into an iconic status all its own.
