New Season – New Highlights: Paavo Tynell

Paavo Tynell


Bukowskis presents a rare “snowflake” chandelier by Paavo Tynell at this spring’s Design Sale Helsinki.

Tynell was the first Finnish designer to work solely with lighting. He trained as a sheet metal worker and worked as such until 1918 when he, together with a few others, started Taito Oy. As a designer at Taito Oy and in his own projects, Tynell used his knowledge and metalwork skills to use the material to manipulate the light. He developed new ways of aiming the light to create indirect lighting to achieve a softer, more atmospheric light.

The ”Snowflake” light will be sold at Bukowskis upcoming online auction Design Sale Helsinki April 5 – 16. For more information, please contact our design specialist Anna Rosenius.
