– The art of light
An early 1950's chandelier for Taito. Estimate: 25 000 - 30 000 EUR
In addition to his work at Taito Oy, Tynell worked together with architects to create light fixtures for specific spaces, such as the Parliament House in Helsinki, the UN Secretary General’s office in New York and the Lasipalatsi building in Helsinki. While the polished brass light fixtures became Tynell’s trademark around the world, he also designed luminaires in many other styles to suit the tastes of a wide range of customers.
