Frezza challenge for UAE students
Dubai, December 5, 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 Office Exhibition opened yesterday (December 4) at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. This three-day event is the Gulf region’s flagship office furniture, interiors and design event.
The event is featuring exclusive product launches, cutting edge developments and innovative design from world-renowned manufacturers and distributors.
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,” said assistant professor of Interior Design, American University in Dubai, Dr Linda Nubani.
“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 Nubani added.- TradeArabia News Service
