QSX : Quick Seat Exchange

Venue transformation concept

Imagine a function space so adaptable it can transform at the push of button between an open conference centre space to to a multi layout auditorium with rows of seats facing at the exact angle suited to the event and each seat individually programmed with air conditioning.

That’s exactly what SERAPID was asked to design and develop for the Foundation Louis Vuitton, one of the world’s most iconic fashion brands, a challenge it couldn’t wait to meet.

The client required a fully flexible venue, a multifunctional space for art and culture that was modern, contemporary and versatile. The result? A whole new venue transformation system designed called QSX. Using the highly reliable LinkLift technology which SERAPID combined with a rotational movement solution hidden beneath the flooring, the venue can transform from a flat timber floor to variable raised rows of seats in just a matter of minutes. With an air conditioning system embedded into each seat the venue is not only truly adaptable, but state of the art too.

Since this project, SERAPID has developed the system further, taking the concept of configurable hall systems to a whole new level. Not only is it possible to transform a empty room into a multi-purpose seated auditorium, SERAPID's QSX can also change seat row configurations from straight to angled and even curved layouts. The universally patented system is innovation at its very best.
