Spanish hospitality - Andreu World
by Vera Siegmund | 3/28/2008

Patricia Urquiola, Jaime Hayon, Javier Mariscal, Lievore/Altherr/Molina - contemporary Spanish design is in extremely high demand among German and Italian manufacturers. And in Spain itself too, young companies are getting established with increasing success, such as Joquer, Upoh and ABR.One furniture manufacturer which has recognized and supported the potential of Spanish creative talent ever since the 1950s is Andreu World.

The initially small furniture company has specialized in the production and sale of designer tables and chairs for home living and the commercial world. Thanks to its drive for innovation, it was both able to keep pace with technological advances and continually reinterpret the table and chair. Many of the product ranges, which now make up over 60 collections, have been awarded international design prizes. Alongside Javier Mariscal, who designed the chair WOK for Andreu World, for many years the successful trio Lievore, Altherr and Molina from Barcelona has been responsible for the company's design quality. Light, elegant and sometimes with surprising proportions, they create seating which invites you to pass the time in all areas. Be it with the prize-winning SMILE chairs and stools, the seats of which slightly curve upwards on both sides, with a particularly wide seat as in the LINEAL series or with the RDL lounge chair, with its backward-sloping rear legs, the sophistication of Lievore, Altherr and Molina's chairs is in the detail.

The base frame of the swivel or runner-based chair RONDA, for example, is so delicately formed that the seat appears to hover. The way in which lines meet surfaces here and form a three-dimensional piece of furniture lends these chairs a face which is both young and classic.

Andreu World presents its products all over the world at the most important furniture fairs and that, as the introduction on the homepage already shows, with great passion and humor.
