Bespoke seats for this public musical institution
Description Technical data

Figueras was chosen to help transform and fit out the iconic main auditorium with architect Ian Ritchie, incorporating very demanding acoustic requirements.

Designed for opera and musical theater productions, the Susan Sainsbury Theatre is at the heart of the Royal Academy and was inspired by the curved forms of stringed instruments.

The seating was individually customized and designed for this wonderful project. To achieve the necessary acoustic parameters, the seat was perforated and wood and leather-like finishes were chosen, minimizing sound absorption. The acoustic qualities of the chair were laboratory tested during the process, making the room sound the same in crowded and empty rooms, as it does during rehearsals, highlighting the liveliness of the space.
