600 Seats: Retractable Seating System for BBC at TC1, Television Centre, London, UK

When Specialists in Seating was tasked with supplying the prestigious BBC with over 600 retractable seats for its London Television Centre, quality and comfort were two key considerations.

When the BBC required a new, show-stopping seating system for its iconic TCI Television Centre in London, Specialists in Seating was the perfect choice. Supplying a robust, retractable system for 600 seats in the custom shade of Matador, the FD 200 retractable chairs make an impressive impact with the P850 retractable platforms. Upholstered in high-quality Camira Fabrics, the seating system offers both style and substance, providing audiences with the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
