THE GENIUS OF PAAVO TYNELL
Paavo Tynell was born in Helsinki 12 years after the invention of the domestic light bulb. By the time he died in 1973, he was known fondly as ‘the man who illuminated Finland’.

Working closely with Paavo Tynell’s family, GUBI has embarked upon a journey of design archaeology, restoring Tynell’s sought-after masterworks to production and bringing the pieces back into design lovers’ homes.
