Bay Gate

Foster + Partners

The BAY GATE seating system has a supporting structure consisting of a steel cross beam and adjustable feet. The frame, seat and back are made of nylon available in different colors. The basic modules can be further customized with optional elements and accessories. The seat padding is available upon request with a PAD applied to the seat in polyurethane foam with Pelle Frau® Colorsphere or fabric upholstery. For added comfort, central and end armrests can be added in colors matching the frames, as well as central and end tables in black HPL. The available accessories include an additional electrical outlet, a USB port below the armrest, and a wireless charging port applied to the central or end tables.


The result of close collaboration with the renowned London studio Foster+Partners, Bay System offers a flexible and durable seating solution that can be easily configured to suit the diverse needs of public areas such as airports, healthcare facilities and universities. The two different layouts - BAY Gate and BAY Lounge - are designed to offer different levels of ergonomic support and privacy while waiting, always with comfort, technological innovation and craftsmanship in mind.

Designed by
Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners has always been guided by a belief that the quality of our surroundings has a direct influence on the quality of our lives, whether that is in the workplace, at home or in the public realm. Allied to that is an acknowledgement that architecture is generated by the needs of people - both material and spiritual - and a concern for the physical context and the culture and climate of place. Foster + Partners believe the best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function; its ecology; the quality of natural light; the symbolism of the form; the relationship of the building to the skyline or the streetscape; the way you move through or around it; and last but not least its ability to lift the spirits. This holistic approach is augmented by a strong commitment to the clients we serve, and also to the public domain and the many users involved. A high degree of personal service, coupled with respect for the precious resources of cost and time, therefore characterises our client relationships.
