Polish company designed the stadium seats for the World Cup in Qatar

A Polish chair manufacturer has provided three hundred and fifty thousand chairs for the stadiums of the World Cup in Qatar.

The seats, designed by Forum by Nowy Styl, fill six of the eight stadiums at the World Cup. The company is present in Qatar with its Abacus and Omega plastic chairs, as well as the Oscar VIP upholstered model. It has previously supplied seats to venues such as the Puskás Arena in Budapest, the Park Olympique in Lyon, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

“The biggest challenge was to throw all European templates we are used to out of the window. This particularly concerns the VIP zones. In these cases, all, even the most exclusive ideas taken from European models, turned out to be too ascetic. To meet their expectations, we had to completely change our thinking about many things. I admit that sometimes our European rationality and cool-headed calculations had to be put aside,” says Jakub Rachfalik, the company’s managing director. However, it was also important for the company to ensure that their seats will be part of sustainable solutions once the World Cup is over.
