SERAPID Group announces its latest QSX Seating System Installation at Zaryadye Park, Moscow, Russia
SERAPID Group, a leading supplier of lifts, quick die change and horizontal transfer systems, is pleased to
announce its latest QSX Seating System installation to be unveiled at the grand opening of the Philharmonic
Concert Hall at Zaryadye Park, Moscow, Russia.
The innovative SERAPID QSX system, the first system to combine curved row raked seating with a reconfigurable,
automated, multi-purpose venue system, consists of twenty curved rows ranging from 23 to 30 metres, with
a total of 677 seats. The smooth-operating system is fully automated and can change from a flat floor to a raked
seating setup in less than 15 minutes. The system works for straight, curved or faceted tiers regardless of the
number of rows, seats or configurations.
The redevelopment of the previously vacant space near the Red Square in Moscow into the stunning
Zaraydye Park is the vision of a design consortium led by Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS + R), that
includes Hargreaves & Associates and Citymakers. The park includes three performance venues, with
a concert hall considered to be one of the most complex elements of the park. The integrator for
the concert hall, Doka, selected SERAPID to deliver the most advanced venue technology available.
The Concert Hall will officially open September 8, 2018, the Anniversary of Moscow, with performances by
Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eyvazov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Albina Shagimuratova, and Juan Diego Florez accompanied by
the Mariinsky Theater Orchestra. The concert will also be broadcast online.
