Part of the Royal Opera House’s ‘Open Up’ Building for the Future project.
Race Furniture won the contract to design, manufacture, deliver and install over 400 seats into the newly refurbished Linbury Theatre.
We worked closely with the Architect Stanton Williams and theatre consultants Charcoal Blue together with the contractor Rise ensuring the correct design and layout of the seating.
The product specified was a customised version of Race’s Chavenage Seat, a versatile theatre seating system that allows the designer to customise its appearance to suit the unique demands of each space. Whilst maintaining the overall design of the seats, there were a variety of permutations that included floor fixed, removable, riser mounted, higher/taller seats and seating adapted for a retractable platform.
