Shanghai Poly Grand Theatre

Shanghai, China

Kvadrat textiles have been chosen for the Shanghai Poly Grand Theatre. The building, which contains the city’s first ‘waterscape theatre’, is located by Yuanxiang Lake, in Jiading New Town.

The Shanghai Poly Grand Theatre is designed by Tadao Ando. It comprises a main hall, a multi-function hall and plazas, as well as two ‘semi-outdoor’ theatres named ‘water stage’ and ‘roof theatre’.

The 1466 seats in the main theatre are upholstered in a Trevira CS version of Steelcut Trio, in a greyish brown shade. A red version of the textile is used for the 400 seats in the multi-functional hall.
