Swan

The Swan… a vision of clean lines and geometric form

Originally designed for the Sackler Gallery auditorium at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Swan seating reflects the designer’s vision of clean lines and a geometric form. It was created in collaboration with architects Softroom and showcases Race’s fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. Swan is deceptively comfortable, with luxuriously soft padding to the seat and a profiled lumbar cushion.

It is the perfect seat for auditoria, theatres, and music venues and, like all our seats, can be fully customised to suit each unique venues needs.

Remember, these product models are for your reference only. We provide bespoke seating solutions, so while we use these models to form the basis of the seat, they are completely customised to suit your requirements and 100% unique to you.
