The armchairs provided for the new auditorium in the Ministry of Health in Rome had to meet two basic needs: one part of the room had to be fitted with a flexible and modular seating system, while the other part required permanent seats equipped with a sophisticated simultaneous interpretation system and microphone. With these requirements in mind, Ares Line created GENESIS EVOLUTION, a new seat that can be harmoniously combined with the folding PAPILLON model.
