Description

Andreu World has grown and evolved convinced that their philosophy, attention to detail, excellence and good design, is the fundamental guide to continue being who they are now and in the future.

At the core of Andreu World is wood, there is no other material as unique, warm and noble. Woodworking is a philosophy unto itself, it is a way of relating to the world. Over time they have sought to maintain these qualities in all of their designs, regardless of the materials and technology employed. Wood, in their work, is synonymous with the woodworker, they have retained the same expert hands that have learned their craft over years of experience.

To explain what are they and how they carry themselves, they continue to believe in the principles and values that have brought us to where they are today…
