A rare brass pendant designed by Paavo Tynell and produced by Idman in the early 1950s. This particular model 9085/ K2-51 was also one of the designs used for Tynell’s Finland House collection. The brass cylinder appears to float in the black metal sleeve, which creates an intriguing three-dimensional effect with soft, direct and indirect lighting. The lamp is in very good original and fully working condition and is stamped with the manufacturers mark “Idman”.
