Outline

Sports arenas and stadiums are spaces where people get together to share fun, excitement and emotions. "ATHLETE" is a gallery or spectator seat offering both comfort and the ability to freely make seat settings essential for public facilities. A new free-slide design let's you freely set gaps between seats. This allows increasing the number of seats or opening up gaps for providing tables later on to handle changes in facility needs once construction is complete. If the chair breaks for some reason it easily replaces from the front side as a quick solution that won't interfere with business operations. It also gives plenty of front path space before sitting since it flips up compactly. Seat numbers are easy to see from far-off so it's easy to find your seat even in vast viewer stands.
