Carin Lisa Johansson-Pape née Johansson (1907-1989) was the most significant Finnish lighting designer in the 20th century. Her priorities were first the function, then the design. After graduating in 1927 from the Central School of Art & Design in Finland, she went on to design furniture for prestigious Helsinki retailer Stockmann and subsequently lighting for their lighting company, Orno. From then on, her focus turned to lighting and she co-founded the Illuminating Engineering Society of Finland. In 1951 she became the artistic director of the Friends of Finnish Handicraft and remained so until shortly before her death.
Her work was presented in New York's World Fair, 1939, and the Milan Trienniale IX in 1951, where she won an award. Three years later, at the same exhibition, the hanging lamp of opal glass that Johansson-Pape designed for Iittala won Gold.
In 1957 Johansson-Pape was awarded the Pro Finlandia prize and remains a luminary in Scandinavian design.
