Alignment, slope and view

Seats to see more than meets the eye

THE ORIGIN OF THE WORD THEATER COMES FROM LATIN THE TRU(M), ITSELF AN ADOPTION FROM THE GREEK WORD THÉATRON, FROM THE VERB ΘΕΆΟΜΑΙ (THÉAOMAI), WHICH MEANS TO WATCH, TO BE SPECTATORS.
We become spectators when we watch a theatrical performance that combines words, gestures, music and dance; more broadly, when we become part of a community meeting. A theater is a place that must provide a perfect viewing solution, so that people can partake in the event with pleasure and engage their emotions.

The arrangement of seats in a hall (rectilinear, curvilinear, block configurations), the slope or floor surface (which may present different heights), and the existence of construction elements (ramps, stairs, and pillars), are factors that may compromise the spectator’s view. In addition to designing a good armchair that meets good comfort standards, ergonomics and style, a careful analysis of the hall’s geometric elements becomes necessary to determine their interaction with each single seat, as well as to adequately manage the available space to ensure optimal view from any position and angle. Engineers, designers and technicians work as a team to provide the best viewing solutions..
Their scrupulous study allows to define seating arrangements that guarantee a perfect view from every position, thus maximizing the results of our analysis, as well as space management and, more broadly, the project in its entirety.
