QSX : Quick Seat Exchange
Venue transformation concept
Imagine a function space so adaptable it can transform - at the push of button - between an open conference centre space to a multi layout auditorium, with rows of seats facing at the exact angle suited to the event, and each seat individually programmed with air conditioning.
That’s exactly what SERAPID was asked to design and develop for the Foundation Louis Vuitton museum and cultural center, a challenge SERAPID couldn’t wait to meet.
The client required a fully flexible venue, a multifunctional space for art and culture that was modern, contemporary and versatile. The result? A whole new venue transformation system called QSX. Using the highly reliable LinkLift technology combined with a rotational movement solution hidden beneath the flooring, the venue can transform from a flat timber floor to variable raised rows of seats in just a matter of minutes. With an air conditioning system embedded into each seat, the venue is not only truly adaptable, but state of the art as well.
Since this project, SERAPID has developed the system further, taking the concept of configurable hall systems to a whole new level. Not only is it possible to transform an empty room into a multi-purpose seated auditorium, SERAPID's QSX can also change seat row configurations from straight to angled and even curved layouts. The universally patented system is innovation at its very best.
