More than any other car, the Volvo 240 became a symbol of Scandinavian and Nordic values.


The safe, the sound, the commonplace. Square and homely, yet solid and reliable.


Function over form. No frills. Taking you from A to Z. A car. An ambassador for the Scandinavian social democracy.


This project will be out as a book on JOURNAL publishing house in the fall 2015.
