A note about the artist: "Paavo Viljo Tynell (25 January 1890-13 September 1973) was a Finnish designer who is best known for his lighting fixtures and lamps. Among other things, Tynell designed the lighting for the office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in New York and for the Parliament House and Lasipalatsi building in Helsinki. Tynell attended the Central School of Applied Arts in Helsinki, and he taught there metalwork in 1917-1923. He was one of the founders and the main designer of Taito company, and managing director of the firm in 1918-1953. He collaborated with distinguished Finnish architects, including Alvar Aalto, and his lamps were widely sold not only in Finland but in the United States, too. He used brass and glass in an elegant and simple fashion, and his designs were often decorated with perforated patterns. In 2018, the Danish design company Gubi relaunched a collection of Tynell’s lighting designs.
