The motifs for all the light fittings in the theatre are derived from styles of the past. With their ample shapes, the lamps fit in well with the imaginative world of the theatre. The light fittings in the Jyväskylä Workers’ Club date from a time when lamps took shape on the architect’s drawing board, but skilled hands were still needed to make them.
