And the winner is…Poltrona Frau

Poltrona Frau has long been the seat selected for institutional locations.

Today, it’s also the seat for celebrities, directors and composers, as they nervously wait to hear their name called at the Oscar Awards Ceremony.

Poltrona Frau, with its Custom Interiors business unit, developed 1,000 custom seats in the David Geffen Theater. A two-year project made through the continuous work of the Contract Seating team with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop developers. The results, as happened in the past, is a one-of-a-kind project, completely tailored to the needs.

The new seating features a velvet fabric and a personalized color, where the first rows can be fully disassembled to provide more space to accommodate any type of event.

The Geffen Theater is located in the Sphere Building, one of the two spaces composing the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, the first worldwide institution dedicated to the exploration of the arts and science in the world of cinema inaugurated last September 30, 2021 in Los Angeles.
