Aalto University Business School staircases, Otaniemi, Espoo

Aalto University’s two identical staircases – one with Lumir sprayed directly on concrete walls and the other one without acoustic solution. Lumir is installed to the IC-98 artist group’s staircase artwork Mare Tranquillitatis. The spiral staircases form a zone of tranquility and silence in the work.
