The walls are randomly shaped and wave through the space, each layer has its own color and structure. The layers are accentuated with indirect light lines for a dramatic effect. The architectural columns show images of paintings by Chagall, executed in glass mosaic. The lounge is visually divided with three accent colors from paintings by Chagall and also translated into the upholstery of the furniture. Behind the reception is a large stained glass wall that is indirectly illuminated based on Chagall's work with adjustable glass sections.
The imposing ceiling is a representation of the supremacist style of El Lissitzky which he called PROUN; the stage where someone changes from painting to architecture.
The new terminal is designed in Russian constructivist style. The inspiration are the well-known Russian artists. The imposing ceiling in the lounge is a representation of the supremacist style of El Lissitzky which he called PROUN, ‘the stage where someone changes from painting to architecture’.
