Making of Kompass

Poltrona Frau, 2015

Through a series of concepts, models and different prototypes we tried to design a very simple mechanical and cinematic solution for a minimal auditorium seating system. The mechanism determines the object and the object determines the mechanism.

When the seats are closed, one only sees low walls composed of archaic leather elements, structuring the room in an almost architectural way. When folded down, a perfect seat appears and the backrest automatically moves into position. The leather elements between the seats turn out to be great armrests.
