The team at UCI are preparing for a big 2008, with their innovative, eco-designed â€˜Task Airâ€™ workstation a finalist in both the Australian International Design Awards and the Interior Design Awards.
April 3rd, 2008
UCI has been in the commercial furniture market for 30 years. A national company with local manufacturing facilities, the UCI team is thrilled to have their ’Task Air’ design recognised by all the right industry bodies.
“We are all really excited,” says Marketing Manager Lina Morvillo (pictured, front). “There is a great environmental story and we are pleased to be involved in such innovative products.”
The customised air-conditioning system is sure to be the way of the future for open-plan fitouts, redefining personal comfort in the workplace.
This is the second time UCI has been a finalist in the Australian International Design Award.
“Our ’Aero2’ workstation was in the program a few years ago and won a Design Mark,” says Sales Consultant Peter Minahan (pictured).
UCI will be participating in both Saturday in Design and Brisbane in Design and the team encourages people to check out the ’Task Air’ product at these events.
The Interior Design Awards will be announced April 11th, with The Australian International Design Awards following on May 30th.
