The Finnish industrial design master Paavo Tynell's specialty was in lighting and design. He co-founded the design company Oy Taito Ab in 1918 and was the head designer. His company became a leading player in the Finnish lighting market, the European market, and beyond. Tynell went on to freelance for American companies – one in particular was Lightolier Inc., where he developed his own interpretation of post-war American style.
