First created for Helsinki’s Hotel Aulanko in 1935 and reintroduced by GUBI in 2018, the 9602 Floor Lamp comprises a rattan-wrapped stem with a polished brass base and conical crown that ties the design together. In this special edition, GUBI brings together two masters of 20th-century design – the Finnish lighting maestro Paavo Tynell, and the renowned Parisian textile house Maison Pierre Frey, introducing a dreamlike new dimension to the Tynell Collection.
The pleating of the fabric, coupled with the kaleidoscope of colors on the shade, creates a beautifully variegated play of light that brings softness, warmth, and poetry into any space – an atmosphere reminiscent of lying under a tree on a summer’s day. The pattern, named ‘Le Jardin Du Palais’, is a dreamlike depiction of a fantasy garden, full of extraordinary flora and fauna. Originally designed for a table service developed jointly with the ceramics manufacturer Faïencerie de Gien, the rich and romantic design represents an idealized, almost surreal rendition of a Persian landscape in the Safavid Dynasty of the 16th-century. In this garden paradise, an eclectic menagerie of gazelles, tigers, squirrels, flamingos, and herons inhabit a boldly colorful idyll.
