Zaha Hadid Architects | Array Auditorium SeatingArray auditorium seating is an innovative new collaboration by Zaha Hadid Design for Poltrona Frau Contract. As a stand-alone piece, Array’s design is driven by the seamless transition from a sculpted block of Euclidean geometry into a dynamic, twisting gesture. This accentuated rotation merges the backrest, armrest and seat into a compact bud from which these three elements blossom.

The striking angle of the seat challenges auditorium seating typecasts while the uncompromised ergonomic design gives exceptional comfort.  As a field of multiplicities, the twist in each seat breaks the otherwise continuous bands imposed by rows of traditional auditorium seating to reveal the theatre’s space as a completely immersive environment; a differentiated array that generates a unique perception of the auditorium from every position within. Poltrona Frau Contract’s engineers and craftsmen have masterfully interpreted the essence of Hadid’s pioneering design.
