Array Seating by Zaha Hadid

array01

Array is a matrix in the language of science and is perfectly inclined to describe the new auditorium seating system designed by Zaha Hadid for Poltrona Frau Contract as it creates a network of visual and geometrical effects in each seating area.

The project breaks the mould of traditional auditorium and theatre seating system. Array is a single, compact, dynamic unit. It is a self-rotating structure built on the principles of Euclidean geometry with back, arms and seating appearing to form a single flower bud ready to burst open. It disrupts the traditional visual monotony of rows after row of seats.

The design incorporates sculptural angles to create a range of unique visual effects that change according to the viewer’s vantage point and transform the theatre into a welcoming self-contained place. A new concept in seating that combines unconventional shape with ergonomic design and extremely high levels of comfort.

The product is an expression of the consolidated artisanal competence gained in one hundred years of tradition in engineering and technological expertise that is constantly evolving in terms of acoustics, visibility and safety.
