    Finnish interior designer Tapio Anttila has won the international ecology-driven design award for his unique Tuohi product series.

    The Green GOOD DESIGN award is designed to emphasise the importance of sustainable design and to raise consumer awareness of companies that adhere to the principles of sustainable design in their operations.
