The Sage Gateshead is one of the greatest cultural centres in the UK and one of the most renowned internationally. Inaugurated in 2004 and designed by Foster+Partners has a surface of 20,000 square metres. This was the first Performing Arts Centre by this architecture studio which even before its opening was already awarded.
The main hall, with 1,650 seaters, was fitted with a chair designed especially by the architect and made by Figueras. Made using the same colour and materials as the space, the chair has 1650 variations, as many as there are seats in the auditorium.
This inspiring hall was recognized as one of the top-five auditoria in the world.
