The Genya Armchair by Lamm Folds Away as Though It Was Never There

Although seating is often a hot topic in the industrial design community, the conversation rarely falls on modern auditorium seating. Yet it would be a shame not to bring attention to the Genya armchair. Designed by Dante Bonuccelli and manufactured by Lamm, the modern auditorium seating could be mistaken for a number of abstract things including a easy-to-master maze amongst other things.

This is because the Genya system folds up seamlessly with its backrest so that the modern auditorium seating looks as though it never existed. Made out of non-deformable, CFC-free, polyurethane foam padding, it not only looks sleek, it is very comfortable as well. This is saying a lot considering that such public seats are never a delight to sit in.
