The seating specialist Patir has been active in the gaming market for almost 20 years, delivering premium quality seating solutions for arcades and casinos. The secret of the company’s success has always been a proprietary design and top quality.

Patir Design is a long term leading European provider of casino seating. The Munich based company was founded in 1993 and has since gained extensive experience and a specific know how of the particular needs and requirements of seating furniture for casinos and other gaming venues.

Highlights with original design

“Player seating is subject to wear and tear”, says Managing Director Seref Patir. “Therefore it must be manufactured according to the highest quality standards, and the fabrics used need to be exceptionally robust. At the same time the guest as well as the operator expects highly comfortable chairs. The comfort has a direct influence on the length of stay at the machine.”

Not least due to its excellent reputation Patir Design has become one of the industry’s trend setters for casino seating. The growing international recognition has its drawbacks, too, to the effect that popular models of Patir chairs have been frequently copied. Patir takes immediate judicial action against any such counterfeiting enterprises. Part of the Patir business philosophy has always been to strictly create original chair design – the company strives to set highlights with its innovative style and design.

Successful trade show participations around the globe prove that the Patir concept bears fruit. Be it IMA in Dusseldorf, ICE in London, G2E in Las Vegas and in Macau or FER Interazar in Madrid – Patir meets its customers, everywhere.

Patir shows extravagance …

Patir not only scores with original design and innovative highlights – the company also offers competent and professional advice, short delivery times and first class service. “Top product quality and excellent craftsmanship combined with maximum comfort levels and functionality are a matter of course for us”, says Seref Patir.

Excellent craftsmanship

Patir is especially proud of the outstanding quality of its products. Thus Patir Design has managed to become the supplier for many major players in the international casino and entertainment industry. Yet the company does not rest on its laurels – it continually pushes the further product development and optimisation.


The manufacture of individual seating solutions as well as exclusively customised products is part of the Patir customer support portfolio. The company offers a broad range of colour and fabric choices as well as individual embroidery or other design variants to meet all customer requests.

Topic of the speechUnderstanding the new generations needs

Description: For the last couple of years the iGaming industry has been struggling to attract new young customers. With these millennial generations rapidly representing half of our market, the struggle is becoming a critical issue. The real question is, what do they expect from us?

  • Can ”social” work without ”skill”?
  • Could products such as DFS, eSports, monetised video games and VR fit the needs of millennials?
