    A great number of books and articles have been written about the architecture and furniture designs of Alvar Aalto (1898–1976), but very few of them mention anything about his use of colours. This paper focuses on how Alvar Aalto was influenced in his use of colours by the avant-garde and modern art and design of his time. Colour is an integral element of Aalto’s architecture, especially in his lesser-known early works and in the world-famous functionalist buildings of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Aalto was not only an architect, but also a designer of innovative furniture, lamps and glassware. Colour played a major role in also these designs.
