Solution on demand

Aresline came up with a solution on demand  and designed three different types of the same seat model: one with a retractable mechanism inside the thirteen steps of the motorised telescopic grandstand; one that is fixed to the floor but still removable; a fixed one installed on the part of the fixed grandstand into which the entire stepped platform system is retractable.



The seat technology is designed to be completely compatible with the sophisticated system of the telescopic grandstand.



The room is converted in just a few minutes, using a remote control, from a stepped auditorium with over 490 seats to an open space.


Design and Details

The custom-designed seats are integrated perfectly into the setting through the use of precious finishes. The extra-comfy padding and the writing table with a screen print of the client’s logo are an important feature.
