GUBI Stemlite Pendant

The 1965 Pendant was originally designed by Paavo Tynell in 1948. Like many of his best-known designs, the pendant was designed for the Finland House in New York - one of the most ambitious and successful projects of all time to showcase Finnish design.

The Stemlite (1962) was the first ‘total look’ lamp, a pioneering new typology conceived by American Designer Bill Curry, which replaced the traditional base-plus-shade form with a single self-contained unit comprising interchangeable modules. His debut design, the much-emulated Stemlite, was named “most influential lamp of the year” by Industrial Design Magazine in 1965, used on the set of the original Star Trek TV series, and remained in production until 1977. Now remastered by GUBI after almost half a century, the new collection comprises two table lamps, two floor lamps and a new pendant – a simple inversion of the original design – in a contemporary yet authentic color palette.

Today’s Stemlite remains true to Curry’s designs, comprising three of the original heights: two table heights, one of which was originally conceived as a floor lamp and the original floor lamp height. A second, taller floor lamp has been added and a pendant light has been engineered by simply flipping the original design upside-down. A counterweight has been hidden in the negative space created by the geometry of the foot of the upright lamps to meet contemporary safety requirements regarding stability and versions of the floor and pendant lights with new larger globes are also available.
