A rare pendant or ceiling lamp designed by Paavo Tynell and produced by Taito Oy in the early 1950s. The model number is J1982N and the lamp is marked with Taito. The pinhole perforations in the off-white or cream colored shade create a beautiful pattern of light. Another striking detail is the leather string woven into the bottom edge of the shade. The lamp has an opal glass diffuser which gives a soft and warm light distribution. If another height is desired, the existing cable can easily be replaced by a new drop down cable.
