A ceramic relief out of white porcelain clay by artist Kirsi Kivivirta was chosen to be displayed at the main lobby area of the new building of Aalto University School of Business. The work on the building at Otaniemi campus will be finished by the end of 2018. The name of the piece is “Stage” and its atmosphere is stage-like, as it depicts a place that will create a setting for people and ideas to encounter.

“The droplets depict interaction as well as the continuous movement of thoughts and ideas. Single droplets form paths that grow and join with others to create droplet flows. They allow people to become part of the cycle of nature, rejuvination and life force”, Kivivirta describes the artwork.
