SisustustaThe colours of Lappia Hall are typical for Aalto; Light whites and blues dominate the build-ing both outside and in furnishing. Parts of the walls in the entrance hall are clad with shin-ing, dark blue tubular ceramic tiles. The height variations in the upper bottom of the foyer are regulated by white painted metal plates and lattice works which are placed at different heights on the wall. Material choices and Artek lamps and furniture emphasise the unity of the building. The floor material of the entrance hall and the staircase leading to the foyer is limestone from Loue - Lappish marble.
