Quinette Gallay is proud to have been chosen by Obihiro’s Citizen’s Cultural Hall in Hokkaido to manufacture and install theatre seating for the renovation of their concert auditorium.
Obihiro Citizen’s Cultural Hall first opened in 1989 and has rapidly become one of the most popular venues in Hokkaido for classical music concerts, competitions and performing arts events. In 2015, the venue was selected as one of the “Top 100 Performance Halls for Sound” by The Sound Engineers & Artists Society of Japan and the Japanese Theater Technicians Federation for its outstanding technical prowess and hospitality.
Dessert company Rokkatei often held concerts at the Cultural Hall and President Mr Oda was keen to help the venue replace their ageing seats. Having seen the impressive Quinette Gallay seats at the Tokachi Plaza, also in Obihiro, Mr Oda turned to our colleagues at Kotobuki Seating in Tokyo to supply 1540 of our Star Theatre BI seats.
Quinette Gallay designed and produced the Obihiro City Hall seats to the highest standards while preserving the aesthetics of the venue. The chairs feature elegant curves, vibrant upholstery and wooden finish to complement the design of the auditorium. Thanks to their lumbar support and thick cushions, the new seats provide spectators with maximum comfort during long performances.
Mr Oda visited Quinette Gallay’s factory in Paris during the chairs’ manufacture to approve the chairs off the production line.
The project went smoothly and the auditorium was completed on time, ready for its reopening concert in April 2019.
