Tyra Lundgren

Passionate of art and design, at the age of 17 she entered the Department of Higher Industrial Design at the Technical school. She studied at the Art Academy between 1918 and 1922.
From 1922 she began to work for Moser factory in Karlsbach, designing tableware.
Despite the success of her designs, she started to study sculpture in Vienna with Anton Hanak and painting in Paris. She has been deeply influenced by the artistic movement named “Valori Plastici”. She began to success thanks
to her works in ceramic presented at the Biennial in Venice and Triennial in Milan. During the 30s Lundgren returned to glassworks, and her international success and her provenience captured the attention of Paolo Venini. She then began her collaboration with Venini in 1937, for which the first
production is a series of birds, fish and leaf bowls.
