Arena - a smarter auditorium

ARENA is an elegant and smart auditorium chair designed by Torsteinsen Design. Creating a standardized chair that can be inserted directly into any project, without being specially adapted. A chair that gives freedom to furnish auditoriums like we have never seen before. Now creativity can flourish, with flexibility for the future.

Efficient and flexible projects

We have developed an intelligent singular attachment that each individual chair attaches to. The singularity means that the particular chair does not relate to the neighboring seat, which is often common in auditorium chairs. The singular mounting bracket will simplify the design work and allow individual adaptations on the construction site. Arena now opens up that auditoriums can be built in an arch, fan shape, or other creative solutions without extensive engineering of the auditorium.

Rapid evacuation
Since the chair builds so little, even with narrower steps, Arena will comply with all requirements for rapid evacuation. The armrest itself is designed for safer evacuation. It does not protrude into the walkway to prevent passage.
