At the renovated site—near Chécy—of insurance company Thélem assurances, the need for flexible, comfortable and elegant solutions was met by the versatile and eco-friendly On Time and F50 armchairs. The site, designed by Vincent Hérault Architects, includes an auditorium whose capacity can be increased (from 192 to 232 seats) thanks to a movable wall. For this, 40 On Time faux leather armchairs, designed by Baldanzi & Novelli and complete with an exclusive system—without visible hinges—that allows the seat and sides to be folded up onto the backrest, were installed. When folded, the compact armchair is reduced to 20 cm in thickness and is easy to store away. For the tiered rows, the elegantly designed F50 armchair, which is padded, upholstered in faux leather and complete with a writing tablet that can be stowed away in the side, was chosen. Those by the aisles are equipped with electrical sockets and some have an external step light (by iGuzzini).
