ArcSeat / seating arrangement


One problem often encountered in a Theater is the unconfortability created by a shared armrest. By changing the seats into an annular arrangement, with the left or right seat in a forward position, This problem can be resolved. Two persons sharing an armrest can now both use it without interferring with each other.
Since every seat is arranged at an angle, the seats create an arc shape. Another advantage of this arrangement is the improved flow of people to and from their seats. This could be especially useful in emergency situations.
