First time in print!

Quite recently, a Finnish home decor magazine "Avotakka" published a story about an industrial designer and his family collecting MCM pieces and integrating them into their every day life. Sound familiar?

Yes, the Olive Green Window has gone "off line" for the first time ever! We were really pleased and proud to see the finished piece, including the photos, text and overall layout. Thus we would like to take the opportunity to thank Soili Ukkola (the journalist) and Juha Juntto (the photographer), who we had the pleasure to meet and share thoughts about our home. It is always a pleasure to observe professionals doing what they do best!


"Surrounded by icons"

So if you are a Finn, or have access to Avotakka even outside Finland, check it out! It is written in Finnish, but the photos are very nice, even if you can't read the story. And you can always be entertained by trying to find the pictures Urho has managed to sneak into!

  1. How exciting!
    I've had a look on their website and can't see the article. Do you know when and if it will be on there for OGW fans not in Finland?

    1. The Avotakka Design issue has been available as a printed magazine since October 30th, however the issue is unfortunately online yet, and the link in the blog post leads to Avotakka magazine homepage. We will ask Avotakka whether we could either get a direct link to their resources to access the article, or publish a reprint here, probably when the next issue comes out. Let you know as soon as possible we have a some news!

  5. It was delightful to find the article about your home. Really beautiful pieces of furniture and details. We are renovating 60's house in Kulosaari at the moment and share a similar taste with you in many ways. Nice to read about people who are passionate about MCM design. Best, Laura
