This is the quintessential Scandinavian modernist model 9041 Snowflake chandelier designed by Paavo Tynell for Taito Oy. This breathtaking chandelier casts a warm glow of light from the intricately perforated brass bowl upwardly illuminating the delicate handcut brass snowflakes and casting long shadows on the ceiling which gently move with the flow of the natural circulation of air in the room. The lighting effects of this lamp create a uniquely soothing and dramatic ambient landscape on the ceiling of any room. This is one of the rare early examples created by Tynell’s own company Taito Oy when he was the head designer and chief executive officer before they merged with Idman in 1954. The entire lamp is crafted from solid brass and retains its original golden patina. The down-rod is a standard fitting that can easily be replaced to suit your specific needs. In doing so it can be adjusted from 33.5″ high to the height of your choosing from the ceiling to the bottom of the finial. The lamp contains all 40 of the original snowflakes.
