Designers of the past were clever, they made chairs with deep curved backs so tight row spaces could be used. This is especially prevalent in upper areas such as grand and dress circles. Combining a tight tread and high row rise creates the perfect parabolic curve to aid sight lines. Modern chair designs use deep padded backs and sloped stanchions, these characteristics don’t tend to work in old spaces.
We stay true to tradition and let the curve of the back create the comfort. This means the Bristol chair works perfectly on existing Fixed Tiering, no need for costly and time consuming re-stepping.
