Hi, we’d like to (re)introduce ourselves!

As we move ahead in an ever changing world, we continue to embrace a culture of lifelong learning and act as knowledge leaders who really do their homework. Our journey has always been a human centered one but now we find ourselves imagining and celebrating an innovative new future while continuing to solve the real problems of today.

Our goal? To be the go to resource for any customer seeking to create memorable and inspiring experiences where ver people gather. In their drive to explore original ideas and bring them to life, we want our customers to always turn to us with confidence.

It’s a future full of possibilities. One that includes wide ranging seating solutions but isn’t limited by the Irwin Seating Company name of our past.

So today, we’d like to re introduce ourselves as…Irwin.

We want the new Irwin name to speak to possibilities far beyond seating. We want it to speak to creating supportive, immersive solutions that celebrate ALL the spaces where people gather.

At Irwin, everything we do here is built on the belief that we’re better together. And with four generations of expertise to back that up, it only makes sense that Irwin should be your next project’s first and last stop.

Irwin. Period.

Love at First Sit

If you simply see a folding chair, look again.

Gathr is something different—a thoughtfully designed seating solution that’s as innovative as it is joyfully uncomplicated. Here, form and function work together to offer up contoured, human-centered comfort at every turn with smooth lines and fewer crevices for easy cleanability. But don’t let its streamlined construction fool you, Gathr delivers incredible, beyond-tough performance that’s sure to please every staff member. And every guest. Every time.

Easy one-handed carry, easy side-to-side ganging, easy release, easy folding, easy storage—they all add up to the fastest set-up and tear down times in the industry. And serious comfort too. Built to handle even your toughest crowds in rugged, indestructible style, Gathr is the surprisingly lightweight seating superhero that lives up to its name…wherever people come together.
