United Arab Emirates December 4th 2007- “Inspire 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

Arteco Presents Italian Design at InRetail 2007

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

United Arab Emirates, Dubai- 5th April 2007- Italian retail interior design company Arteco has confirmed its participation at InRetail 2007, being held from the 3rd to 5th June at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.

The company certainly has an impressive portfolio, having provided interior design and shopfitting concepts for a wide variety of outlets, including boutiques, supermarkets, pharmacies and opticians. Their designs are a mixture of modernity, simplicity as well as functionality. Arteco’s philosophy is to ensure maximum use of available space by ensuring versatility in their choice of display systems. The company places an emphasis on creating what it describes as an atmosphere of harmony and physical wellbeing.

Arteco’s designs are completely representative of the show, says the Exhibition’s Director, Paula Al Chami. Bold, colourful, striking and original. I’m sure the Arteco stand will attract considerable attention.

Arteco will be in good company. InRetail is the Middle East’s premier retail exhibition, with the leading international designers and brands representing every sector of the industry. Specialist areas include retail interiors and shopfitting, retail design and interior acrchitecture, retail technology and visual merchandising as well as in-store marketing and logistics handling.

And like many of the exhibitors, Arteco’s aim at this year’s exhibition is to meet existing clients, as well as expand its business in the Middle East.

Retail is a massively expanding industry across the Middle East – the leading brands clearly have a keen eye on the region and the huge growth opportunities here, adds Al Chami. The show is growing year on year, and with the amazing reception last year’s show received, InRetail 2007 promises to break even more records.
