Szene — An auditorium chair with an organic expression
Modest in size, but extremely spacious and allows a variety seating positions
The Szene chair is originally designed for the auditorium in Axel Towers, located next to the Tivoli Gardens in central Copenhagen. The idea was to create a chair, which was classic, but at the same time with an organic expression to suit the shape of the auditorium and the rest of the buildings. Szene is available in a wall mounted auditorium chair or with cantilever frame.
The Szene chair can be adapted to any desire so that the framework for the design of a project is met and addresses the customer’s needs to its fullness.

Auditorium chairs for Axel Towers
Axel Towers was designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects in 2017 and consists of five golden towers erected at one of the city’s most central addresses for an international law firm opposite Tivoli in the heart of Copenhagen.
Engelbrechts and the architects worked intensively on a design that allowed the Szene chair to move along the curved steps of the auditorium. The result is a chair that seems modest in size, but which in the meeting with the body is very spacious. With its organic form, it embraces the body, enabling many different sitting positions.
For the project in Alex Towers, the choice fell on a fully upholstered version in leather, which complements the entire project’s uncompromisingness in materials, elegance and use.
