The Institut Le Rosey, commonly known as Le Rosey, is a prestigious school near Geneva, Switzerland. Founded by Paul-Émile Carnal in 1880, Le Rosey is one of the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland and one of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions. During great part of the twentieth century, Le Rosey has been known as the “school of kings” since notable alumni, including the monarchs Juan Carlos I of Spain and Rainier III prince of Monaco, were trained here. The building is mainly known by its modern dome of stainless steel – a modern structrure that contrasts with the classic campus of Le Rosey. The seats selected for this job were specially designed following the particular requirements of the venue: Space Lux seats in the stalls combined with bespoke box seats and long benches for the balconies. The result: customized Space Lux chairs mounted on continuos curved benches with innovative hinges for the tipping mechanism. Just spectacular!
