Paavo Tynell

Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was an industrial designer, nicknamed as "the man who enlightened Finland" he is precisely regarded as the pioneer of Finnish lighting design. He attended the Central School of Applied Arts in Helsinki and then became one of the founders and chief designer of Taito Oy, the first luminaire manufacturing company in Finland, later creating modern luminaire and lamp solutions in Europe and around the world. He collaborated extensively with such well-known architects and designers as Alvar Aalto, producing fixtures for him for all his major achievements. The combination of an essential and decorative style with the combination of sculptural elements and natural forms determine Paavo Tynell's design style. Among his most famous works are several brass lamps that echo the physiognomy of elements found in nature. During his career he received numerous awards and honors such as at the Barcelona World Exhibition in 1929, the Milan Triennale in 1933, and the main Good Design award in 1951. In 2018, Danish design company Gubi relaunched a collection of the artist's lighting designs.
