• Compact Closed Profile

    Evolve is just 145mm deep when closed. This small closed envelope is space efficient, and creates generous walkways in front of the chairs.

  • Spring-free gravity tip mechanism with auto-tip armrests

    No need for customers to fold armrests to pass, or for operators to tip them prior to operating retractable platforms.

  • Comfortable, ergonomic design

    Geometry can also be adjusted for higher tiers to optimise comfort and support.

  • Designed to comply to BS EN 12727:2000 Level 4 (severe)

    The highest test level of the British & European strength standard for ranked seating.

  • Nylon bushings for silent operation

    Ideal for performing arts spaces.

  • Versatile

    Available for use on TX Telescopic Platforms, on the removable Matrix system or as a standalone fixed chair.

Back height

Choose from a standard height backrest, or a high back version with elegant stitch detail.

High Specification Customisation

A variety of high specification options can be specified including plain, slotted or perforated timber panels for the outer back and seat underside.

Seat options

Standard seat specification is timber core with foam and upholstery. An optional sprung seat is available for additional comfort.

Armrest Options

ABS plastic, upholstered, timber, or curved timber. A cupholder is available, but this requires a small change to the shape of the seat. 

Writing tablet

Evolve can be specified with an individual folding writing tablet, similar to that fitted to the Espace 628T.

Seat Identification

Seat numbering and aisle lettering.

Fixed Back Geometry

In a standard Evolve design, the backrest moves down as the seat tips up to create a neat, upright closed envelope. For some venues, a static backrest is more appropriate.

Upright Geometry

Optimises the sitting angle for patrons in the upper tiers of a theatre or arena.
