Las Cigarreras - Alicante Smart Cities

Spain

Las Cigarreras is a multicultural centre, a place  of interaction, of dialogue, of creation and projection of contemporary art in all its art forms. It is an open space for general discussion on the vision of avant-garde art: visual and performing art, architecture, music, dance and new technology applied to art.

Located in one of the most representative buildings in the city, the old Tobacco factory, the space is situated in one of the three factory warehouses and with nearly 3000 m2, the result is a project encouraged by the Town hall in Alicante and ‘Alicante Culture’ in which Actiu has provided the furniture.

Furniture that reflects the values represented in this installation, such as functionality, dynamism and plurality. The TNKid chair, with gas elevation, presides over the stage along with the central auxiliary table. Both products in white contrast the black of the decoration and paving.

In the area designed for the auditorium, the Urban Block has been used, selected in three of the ten available colours for the original housing (white, pistachio green and red)

The charm of the Urban Block resides in its back, whose design inspired The universe on your back. It is a nice, light and very comfortable chair; formally delicate, generous in its proportions, technological and robust.

The Passport benches, in its three versions, polyurethane, steel and wood, provide a very comfortable wait for its users

With a strong avant-garde character and an ergonomic design, the shape of the surface of the seat and back are adapted to the shape of the human body, guaranteeing a comfortable and healthy posture. Passport also allows, in all its models, the adaptation for disabled people or those with reduced mobility.

MIT is a bold and versatile chair capable of adapting itself to any environment. Its housing, manufactured from one piece with flexible foam, provides comfort to its users. In this project we can find two of its five versions. On the one hand the banquet chair with its swivel base and gas elevation to adjust the seat.

And on the other the MIT stool, more relaxed, with a structure of four spokes made from aluminised steel tubes. It is complemented with the Canteen tables of 110 centimetres height which allow you to work standing as well as seated.
