Staging Concepts, a provider of portable staging solutions and equipment for performance venues and facilities, has expanded its product portfolio with the addition of the SERIES Model-K stackable theatre chair.
The company will distribute the new seating option, which is manufactured by innovation and design solutions business SERIES Seating.
The chair is an upholstered theatre stacking model featuring an automatic gravity-return self-lifting seat. The chair is offered in both armless or armrest versions and is designed to increase personal space, allowing for more room at the hips and elbows and providing a streamlined profile with increased aisle access and space efficiency.
John Lewis, CEO of Staging Concepts, said, “Performing arts centres, theatres, auditoriums and other performance facilities demand durable, functional and high-quality seating for their venues, and meeting the needs of this important segment is a major focus of our business.
“The addition of the innovative SERIES Model-K stackable theatre chair through our strategic partnership with SERIES makes perfect sense because it allows us to provide a more complete theatre package to our customers.”
The SERIES Model-K chair’s interlocking system allows for quick and easy set up with straight or radius row configurations, allowing long rows of chairs to be solidly linked in just a few seconds.
Other key features of the SERIES Model-K include stacking capacity up to 20 chairs; chair and storage cart slim enough to fit through a standard 32-inch wide doorway; removable or replaceable zippered seats and snap-in back covers; and patented Surround Foam that fully surrounds the inner seat and back structure to prevent fabric marks and prolong foam durability.
Cindy Albrecht, director of sales and marketing for Staging Concepts, commented, “Our theatre customers will appreciate how the Model-K chair sets a new standard in self-lifting theatre stacking chair design.
“The elegantly curved seat backs and seat bottoms are designed as a functional system that not only provides superior ergonomic comfort, but also is visually appealing.”
Staging Concepts will offer the SERIES Model-K chairs in a choice of woven or coated/textured material in black or grey colour options. Customers may select from a number of optional accessories, including cup holders and magnetic seat and row identifiers.
The flexible magnetic system allows row letters and seat numbers to easily be detached with a special removal tool and replaced when needed for the next event. Storage carts also are available with a stacking capacity of up to twenty chairs.
