The University of Montevideo opens a new faculty furnished by Enea
Students and teachers of the new Faculty of Engineering of the University of Montevideo study and work surrounded by Basque design furniture
The University of Montevideo has a new faculty. This is the School of Engineering, whose headquarters have been relocated to a spacious and modern building which opened its doors early this year. The Dovat Arquitectos studio was in charge of the interior design project of the building, which included furniture by Enea provided by our Uruguayan distributor Tecnomadera.
The faculty is located in the LATU Technology Park (Technological Laboratory of Uruguay), and the inauguration ceremony held last April was attended by the president of the country, Luis Lacalle Pou, as well as by the vice president and other government authorities. Not only does this new location provide greater space but it is also aimed at reinforcing the cooperation between its community of students, teachers, and researchers and the neighbouring companies.
With 2,920 m2 spread over 3 floors, the faculty includes large waiting areas, cafeterias, and outdoor spaces that have been furnished with our collections. Enea’s extensive catalogue of design furniture is certainly an excellent choice if you are looking for outstanding university furniture.
Noa stool for meals or a snack between lessons
One of the protagonists of the cafeteria area is our Noa stool. There’s no way this piece will go unnoticed with its seat and backrest in mustard polypropylene. In addition to its great looks, this stool provides comfort and style to any space where you can have a mid-morning coffee to help you recharge your batteries or a quick snack before the next class.
Kubika bench, Oh! lounge chair, and Coma stool to wait or carry on working
A great number of waiting areas have been added throughout the building, both in the cafeteria and between the classrooms on the different floors. Our Kubika bench has been chosen to furnish these areas. These modular seats, upholstered for the occasion in the corporate colours of the centre, enable the creation of unlimited configurations. Cosy areas have been created using 1, 2, or 3 seater modules, either with or without a backrest, where students can work in groups or do a final revision of their notes before an exam.
Polypropylene lounge chairs from our Oh! collection have also been included, creating spaces where students can have a chat or just kill time. The bars can also be a suitable place for waiting, either while printing an important document or while checking your social media. On this occasion they have been combined with our Coma 4L stool.
Our LTS System table with wooden legs and our Noa chair, featuring an upholstered seat pad for added comfort, contribute to creating a functional environment where teachers can meet and work together. In addition, our Oh! Lounge sledge chair, with frontal upholstery for greater comfort, is the perfect match for those quieter moments when you need to finish planning a class or simply switch off until the next lesson.
Street chair and Lottus table for relaxing outdoors
The Street armchair, our outdoor chair par excellence, along with our Lottus AL table, have been chosen to furnish the building’s terrace, a pleasant environment where you can relax after a long day of study, rest after a hard exam, or even share a meal with classmates, weather permitting.
