Astaldi Rome Headquarter
Project: Maria Carfagnini
The design concept contemplated the possibility of using the conference room for multiple scopes. In its new configuration the room has a capacity of 150 seated guests and up to 400 standing; this is achieved through the integration of the moving array system, allowing the seats to “vanish” under the pavement.
“L213” office chair by Lamm, design R&D, with “Tycho” movement system, allowing conference and auditorium seating to disappear below the floor.
Tycho is an automated system devised for moving and hiding the seats below the pavement, placed in horizontal position. The system is customizable according to project requirements. The movement occurrence may be either manual or automated by an electronic or IT device, guaranteeing both the readiness as the quietness of system response.
The Tycho system is conceived in modules having each 2 to 5 seats. The disposition of the modules in the course of emplacement is arranged ad hoc, based upon technical specifics of the individual project, providing entirely variable assets.
