The Unica armchair was chosen for M9, an interactive museum in Mestre which tells the story of the 20th century. Designed by Sauerbruch Hutton Architects, M9 is part of a large regeneration project that includes the Museum site, home to both a 16th century convent and an office building in the past. As well as exhibitions, the colourful main building (LEED gold certified) is home to a 190-seat auditorium. This major communication venue, built to host meetings, conferences, shows and film screenings, was furnished with Unica armchairs designed by LAMM’s R&D department. This chair’s strengths include its design, comfort and adaptability to various settings. The version with a high backrest and visible wooden side panels was chosen and installed in straight rows on 51 cm-high tiers. The armchairs are equipped with foldaway writing tablets with antipanic motion, as well as easily accessible electrical sockets and USB ports.
