Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Miami
Poltrona Frau has developed, manufactured and installed the new seating system for the planetarium dome of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science located in Miami with 260 custom Planetarium chairs, fully upholstered in Polaris eco-leather. The chair has been designed in collaboration with the renowned architectural & industrial design firm GRIMSHAW.
Frost Science is a leading science museum dedicated to sharing the power of science, sparking wonder and investigation, and fueling innovation for the future. The museum is divided into four buildings, the Frost Planetarium, Aquarium, and North and West Wings, where guests can learn about the core science behind living systems, the solar system and known universe, the physics of flight, light and lasers, the biology of the human body and mind, and much more. It's one of the few museums to house a planetarium, aquarium and science museum on one dynamic campus.
In particular the Frost Planetarium is one of only thirteen 3-D 8K-projection planetariums in the world, the cutting edge, 260 seat planetarium takes visitors on virtual journeys that both thrill and educate. The ultra-real immersive experience is the result of a 16 million color visual system using six projectors and surround sound inside the 67-foot.
