Collection: Oiva Kallio (1884-1964)

Oiva Kallio designed the building of the Pohjola Insurance Company in the late 1920s and the building was completed in Kaisaniemi, Helsinki in 1930. With its ribbon-window arrangement, the building was the first business construction in the functionalist style in Scandinavia. The steel furniture designed by Kallio to furnish the customer service areas of the insurance company was inspired by the Bauhaus-style.
