A 1935 design by Paavo Tynell, this GUBI floor lamp is a fine example of Tynell’s skill with mixing and matching various materials to create an airy lampshade. Its rattan-covered stem is the main attraction, but it’s the brass-peaked lampshade that really shines.

The cleverly engineered brass base and cover over the rattan trimmed lampshade are both a work of art in their own right. The curved octagonal shape, while a challenge to manufacture in a mass production environment, provides an optical illusion that’s sure to delight your guests.
