The London agency, Layer, conceptualized the seating of cinemas to limit

. These designs show how the cinema experience will change in the current pandemic era as the entire American theater reopens.

The seat is made of antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral fabrics, which are intricately woven with copper oxide wires. The chair has no gaps, which can prevent dirt and other unsanitary accumulation, and the chair is easy to clean. A protective translucent screen is located at the headrest to form a barrier between adjacent audiences. They also have an LED display to show the seat number to avoid confusion. Finally, virus-killing ultraviolet lamps are installed behind each seat and in the built-in cabinets for additional sterilization.
