Casala chairs form backdrop to Charles III coronation
Casala provided Westminster Abbey with 2,200 Curvy chairs with Zifra digital chair numbering in 2016. The Curvy wooden chair is a functional chair that perfectly matches the architecture and atmosphere of the abbey on an aesthetic level. The Zifra digital display in the backrest with row and seat numbering makes it easy for guests to find the right seat. Especially for Westminster Abbey, the Curvy chair features several customised options.
Casala worked in collaboration with Westminster Abbey for two years on the specifications of the chosen Curvy chair variant. The seat and back are made of oak veneer and lacquered with a stain colour resistant to candle wax. Zifra chair numbering is placed on the inside of the back of the chairs. The outside of the backrest is laser-engraved with the Westminster Abbey crest.
The Curvy chair features subtle bump rubbers on both sides of the frame to prevent mutual noise transmission. In addition, rubbers are fitted between the seat and the frame. A sound-absorbing stacking protection made of felt was also fitted to the underside of the seat, significantly reducing noise during stacking and unstacking.
Ultimately, the project resulted in a beautiful interior that meets the contemporary needs of Westminster Abbey and its visitors.
Zifra digital seat numbering system
Because of its unique display options, Westminster Abbey chose the Zifra digital seat numbering system. Zifra is the world's most awarded and advanced digital seat numbering system and offers numerous display options such as row and seat numbering, letter display, icons, logos and QR codes. The display is seamlessly integrated into the inside of the Curvy wooden backrest. When the displays do not feature information for visitors, the Westminster Abbey crest is displayed. Thanks to Zifra, visitors to Westminster Abbey find their right seat more easily.
