Alexandra Palace, London – UK
Race Furniture was approached by Charcoal Blue as a possible supplier of 400+ stacking chairs for the renovated Alexandra Palace. Several sample chairs were produced and then presented and our Stanway chair was chosen over competitors.
The Race Stanway stacking chairs offer the venue a high level of flexibility. Stacking 30 chairs high, the Stanway was customised so that the chairs could link together but also arc for curved rows.
Construction work began in 2016 following years of research and design and the restoration preserved as much of the original detail as possible. The £27m restoration has breathed new life into a space that has been hidden for over 80 years.
