Andreu World becomes a collaborating company of the Spanish Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, first World Expo to be held in the Middle East and to be inaugurated on October 20. This collaboration is the result of the agreement reached with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), the public company responsible for managing the presence of Spain in the Universal and International Exhibitions.
As one of the Spanish brands with the greatest international presence and leader in the exportation of designer furniture, Andreu World wanted to join the project of the Spanish Pavilion at the Dubai World Expo. As a collaborating company in the construction of the Spanish Pavilion at the Dubai World Expo, managed by Spanish Cultural Action, the international design furniture firm will be responsible for the integral furnishing of all interior and exterior areas of the enclosure. Specifically, Andreu World will be responsible for fully furnishing the common areas of the two floors of the building with seats and tables that include dining spaces (restaurants, grill & tapas, bars, terraces, chill out), access areas, waiting and lobby, as well as different work areas and offices (press room, multipurpose room, VIP room).
Through this agreement, the Spanish brand supports the Spanish proposal for this edition of the World Expo, as “Collaborating Company” of the Spanish Pavilion, designed by the Amann-Cánovas-Maruri studio.
With a forecast of more than 25 million visitors and more than 200 participants already confirmed - among countries, corporations and international organizations -, Expo 2020 Dubai will focus on three fundamental themes: opportunity, mobility and sustainability. Under the slogan “Connecting minds, building the future”, the Expo wants to emphasize that the challenges of humanity require innovative solutions in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For the furnishings, seats and tables developed from sustainable, resistant, durable and environmentally friendly materials have been selected, manufactured - as one of the main raw materials - with 100% sustainable wood, from reforested forests, with FSC® certification and complying with the Chain-of-Custody, from the tree to the final product. Within this building, Andreu World furniture will travel through the different spaces and common areas where it will provide different types of furniture, including seats, sofas, lounge chairs and modular systems (small seat) for corporate spaces and collective areas; sofas, lounge chairs and modular systems for waiting areas or lobbies, as well as meeting and auxiliary tables. All the furniture has been created by internationally renowned architects and designers such as Patricia Urquiola, Jasper Morrison, Alfredo Häberli, Benjamin Hubert, PearsonLLoyd, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga and Lievore Altherr Molina.
