The idea for the design is based on the word FRAME. The letters F, R, A, M were turned into different coloured desks. The red F is based on the colour of the lipstick of the director at the time, Marketta Haila (Seppälä).
The green A is the favourite colour of the curator Paula Toppila. The R was made yellow just to cheer up the space! M is a small table for meetings in the director’s room. E was made into a lamp in the lobby. All of the shelves are made of unpainted brown MDF sheets. The table for showing slides was made in the shape of a light bulb, and in the kitchen, a kitschy Finnish lamp from the 1970’s shines over the organically shaped table, where curators and museum folk meet to discuss Finnish ar t.
