Event design is a complex process, which requires a lot of organization, creative work, eye for detail and managing last minute surprises. Part of the creative process is selecting the right components of the furniture, which can differ according to the kind of event and the format.
In this article we give you some quick tips about the different kinds of chairs for events and how to choose the right model for your stand, congress or corporate event in order to provide the maximum comfort for your assistants and at the same time not burn a hole in your pocket.
· Conference chairs
In this group belong all the chairs we choose for events like seminars, open talks and big conferences. They should be comfortable enough to sit on during various hours so the seat should be soft, preferably with armrests and if the event is educational – even a small attachable mini table, where the assistants can take notes. Another important point here is the cost – since usually you need big quantities the price should be not too high unless you have high budget. We recommend you to take a look at Asti – the absolute champion for congresses or the classical model Sapri. Another option is the more minimal looking Shell, which comes in six different colors and is linkable*.
· Executive room chairs
At some events you have the so called ¨Executive meeting rooms¨ used for more private corporate meetings. For this format it is recommended to use high office chairs with armrests and rotating base, which provide maximum comfort for the people. There are various models available with materials varying from leather to fabrics and metal bases. The important thing here is to choose ergonomically model that supports well the back and allows various leans. We recommend the elegant Mulhacen or the more economical option Ofis.
· Chillout & networking área chairs
For the areas of chillout, networking areas or F&B (restaurant areas) you have more creative freedom in terms of choosing the model. You can select colorful models aligned with your corporate color palette, non-standart models, Nordic furniture or even puffs for more casual environment and comfort. Some of the most classical solutions include Amagni, Tower (comes in more than 10 colors!), Catifa or Torreon.
· Gala dinner & wedding chairs
This kind of chairs should be elegant, beautiful and comfortable. There are multiple models available in different styles varying from classical to modern, from wood, plastic or polypropylene. One of the most popular chairs for weddings is the model Napoleon and it has been used since decades. In the last years the industrial style furniture has also become very popular with models such as Lix.
· Technical support chairs
Last but not least are the chairs used for the technical support team – the people that take care of lighting, visual effects and production. These are usually placed in small cabins near the stage or in special back offices. The chairs should be extra compact in size, preferably foldable and easy to move around and economical. One of the best solutions for these cases is the model Sam.
