Felix Chairs in the Zuilen Zaal

Felix chair is comfortable en very stackable

Concert hall

In the 'Teekenzaal'

The enormous diversity in programming requires a layout in which all rooms can be converted fully flexibly and quickly. In particular, finding a suitable stackable chair was very important because it is used in all halls. i29 ultimately designed a chair especially for Felix Meritis that meets all requirements; stackable, comfortable, light, and in terms of appearance matching the monumental environment of Felix Meritis anno 2020. Chair "Felix" was developed in collaboration with Lensvelt.
