United Arab Emirates December 4th 2007- â€œInspire us was the challenge given by Frezza SpA to architectural and design students at two UAE universities: the American University in Dubai and the American University in Sharjah.
Each will be competing live to design a range of office furniture which will be judged by renowned office furniture manufacturer Frezza SpA at The Office Exhibition.
The winning students will win a once in a lifetime tour of the Frezza facility in Venice, Italy to meet their world class designers.
The Office Exhibition 2008 will be important for our students: not only one will it give them international exposure, it will also offer a unique opportunity to participate in the design and production of an important range of office furniture in Italy. I am delighted to see that international companies are opening doors for students to get involved in their design activities through this competition, and more importantly, by dedicating some of their busy time in critiquing their design projects. Such competitions will further enhance students confidence and prepare them for their professional life.” Dr. Linda Nubani, Assistant Professor of Interior Design, American University in Dubai
“Our students are excited about presenting their work in The Office Exhibition student feature sponsored by Frezza. The opportunity to compete for a chance to visit the home base of Frezza in Italy has added an extra incentive to their labours this semester. Ultimately, the prospect of having their projects evaluated by representatives of an internationally respected furniture manufacturer is the greatest prize–this kind of critical feedback is invaluable in their continuing design education.” Bill Sarnecky, Assistant Professor of Architecture, School of Architecture + Design, American University of Sharjah
