He was co-founder of Taito ab, a lamp manufacturer. A turning point for Tynell's career when he started to collaborate with Finland House in New York, a gallery that promoted Finnish design in New York. His designs were drastically different from those of all American designers and became very popular, this resulted in large experimental works that Tynell is now famous for.
