The conical stem adorned in signature looped-wire blossoms, centering a dimpled bowl-shaped glass diffuser.

Paavo Tynell (1890-1973) was a founder, director and chief designer at Taito Oy or the "Skillful Company". Tynell collaborated with fellow celebrated Finnish designers Alvar Aalto and Eliel Saarinen in numerous projects in and around Helsinki before moving to New York to design for Finland House and Lightolier.
