Paavo  Tynell

Brief Biography:
Paavo Tynell was a Finnish designer. He began his studies at the packing manufacturer G. W. Sohlberg to become a Tinsmith, then continued to study at nights at what was then known as the Taideteollisuuden keskuskoulu (Central school of Art industry). That school is now called Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. He was thought to be so talented that it didn't take long for him to become a teacher. Tynell started a new job at Taidetakomo Koru, where he made his first brass lamp. Tynell was also one of the founders (1918) of Oy Taito Ab, where he remained as the CEO and chief designer until 1953. Taito was known for its famous designers that included names like Alvar Aalto and Kaj Franck. After 1953 Oy Taito Ab was sold to Idman. After that Tynell also designed lightings for the two American companies Litecraft and Lightolier. rnIn addition to his mass produced lighting designs, Tynell also designed unique lightings to many Public spaces and private homes.
