The Press Room of the renowned Wanda Metropolitano, the stadium of the Atletico Madrid, has been arranged with F50 armchairs by LAMM characterised by their comfort, flexibility and a wide range of accessories, as well as the high level of design, which is perfect for the structure of the new stadium, a true jewel of technology

 

The new “Wanda Metropolitano” Stadium in Madrid was at first conceived as an arena for athletics; inaugurated on 6th September 1994, the old structure called Peineta, was built for the bid by Madrid to host the Olympic Games, which never took place.
First, it was a propriety of the Autonomous Community of Madrid, and then of the Madrid municipality, then the Atletico Madrid bought the stadium with a Chinese company, from which comes the new name.
The fundamental rebuilding, conceived by the architects Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz, has transformed the 70.000-seat structure in a jewel of technology provided with monitors, big screens, a fan zone, a dining area and 100% LED lighting.

In 2018, the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium was awarded a prize for the best stadium at WFS Industry Awards; it will shortly host the 2019 Champions League final.
The brand-new big pressroom with cutting-edge technical equipment is also used as a multipurpose auditorium for events, courses, conferences, etc.

Thanks to the excellent design ability, the production organisation – which enables to meet the architects’ and customers’ demands with flexibility –, as well as the long-lasting experience in collectivity, conference and education seating systems, LAMM has been chosen to complete the pressroom arrangement with F50 armchairs. These products are characterised by comfort, flexibility and a wide range of accessories allowing customising every installation according to specific project needs.
F50 seat and backrest have a plywood inner structure and a fire-retardant, crushproof expanded polyurethane padding. This armchair has a gravity tip-up seat, with steel rotation pins and an inclined and shaped backrest that ensure a better comfort thanks to the curved internal structure.

In this case, the installation is on straight rows on steps, with a centre-to-centre distance of 54.5 cm; the floor fixing feet are in steel profile painted with scratchproof finish.
All armchairs are equipped with a large writing tablet in stratified HPL and a die-cast aluminium joint; power sockets are placed on the front part of the side, so they are easily accessible; seat and row numbering are available too.

In addition, the first flat three row armchairs and the further six row armchairs on steps have been supplied with a special system allowing the armchairs to be taken away (in groups of 3-4 armchairs) and moved on castors, thus changing the room configuration in a short time.
