(pronounced gangd SEE-ting)
Just as a gang is made up of people who join together, ganged seating describes chairs — and, sometimes, low side tables — that are designed to be able to connect to one another for group installations. Often you will see the terms “ganged seating” and “tandem seating” used interchangeably, but we consider them to be different. We consider “ganged seating” to be individual furniture pieces that can each stand alone on their own with its own supporting legs, but that are connected together with adjoining parts / mechanisms for certain applications.
