Top awards for the Spanish ANDREU WORLD in Chicago

Eighty-one awards were distributed in the Best of NeoCon 2018 competition of contract furnishing products during NeoCon at the MART. Eight Innovation Awards, five Editors’ Choice Awards, and a Best of Competition Award were included among the honours.

ANDREU WORLD has received the accolades for the FLEX armchair, the DADO sofa, the REVERSE OCCASIONAL table, and the DUOS stools. The collections, which have been designed by Jasper Morrison, Alfredo Häberli and Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, have been chosen from a list of 374 products participating in this year’s competition.

The DUOS barstool series and the REVERSE OCCASIONAL tables have both received the “Gold Award” respectively in the categories of Seating: Bar Stools and Tables: Occasional.

Fruit of the perfect fusion of traditional woodworking and technology, the DUOS bar stools are a new addition to the successful family of chair and armchairs designed by Jasper Morrison for the Spanish brand. Light and timeless, but with a robust wooden structure, the different options of the DUOS collection are offered in full wood version, with upholstered seat and back or with upholstered seat only.
