Long gone are the days when university lecture theatres were drab and dull. They're now bright and welcoming, where colour and design sensibility play a key part in the learning experience. If the lectures are boring, at least the fabric is funky and fun. These images are from the James France and Edward Herbert Buildings in Loughborough University, with tiered lecture theatre seating installed by Lancashire based Specialists in Seating. The auditorium and university seating company has used Main Line Plus and Xtreme Plus, with complementary decorative acoustic panels to match.
