Unique Seating

Unique Seating


When the large boardroom was being put together,
I wanted it to be a showcase of for the latest technology. But I also wanted it to be a place
to comfortably seat up to 70 people. Where everyone could experience the technology and
be part of the company meetings. So I designed the conference room with risers in the back,
a series of steps on which chairs could be placed for formal meetings, and then removed
for more casual meetings. When Mark showed me his old boardroom, I knew I wanted to design
something with a similar layout but this one is his boardroom on steroids. So it meant
looking for theater style seats. And that’s when I came across Mauricio Olarte Sr. and
Jr. The father son team of designers from Series Seating. They specialize in public
seating and their seats have been installed in over 50 countries. A lot of prototyping,
doing drawings until we find the right answers. The way she was describing the project, I
thought this was a very unique project. When I first sat down with Mauricio, it was really
important for him to understand what I was trying achieve in this space. I told him I
wanted a chair that was flexible, movable, small enough to fit multiple in a row, and
I also wanted something that looked good and was modern and contemporary. So after manufacturing
a series of chairs to fit my design, the shipment of theater seats arrived at the boardroom
for installation on the set of risers. So this is the first chair that you’ve produced
in this line. Right. They’re beautiful. And I selected a custom fabric, which I think
is very pretty. It looks beautiful. Yes, we’re very happy with your selection. These chairs
work better in this space because they’re very space efficient. My understanding is
that you were going from a bigger space to a smaller space. So this is a perfect match.
Another feature about this chair in particular that I was really excited about was the flexibility
of being able to remove them all, stack ’em, so that they’re much smaller when you store
them, and then the risers are clear so we can get cushions and much more casual seating
for a board meeting. We definitely need a dry replacement. You have all the features
in this product. You have a stackable chair, high sensitivity,
because you can put a lot together. You have foam to make them very comfortable. And you
have the seat that lifts up with gravity. So there’s weight here so you don’t have any
springs. Yep. To bring the chairs up. And they’re very clean. And then all your covers
are changeable. Yep. So you have a zipper back here and you have underneath a system
that snaps in. It’s very nice. It’s very concealed. You don’t even see the zipper at all. So you
eventually can change all the covers. If somebody spills coffee all over it in a meeting. Or,
if you get tired of the color. From these seats everyone will have a great view of all
the technology. For training, board meetings, or just motivational speeches. They came out
great. Thank you. No, thank you. I feel honored to be the first to have them in a project.
It’s been a frenzy of work these past few days on the job site. But our design accomplishments
can be seen everywhere. From fabulous acoustic felt material on the walls to custom series
seating in our boardroom, to the high tech functional seating in the reception room and
executive offices. And even our own signature scent.
