Thonet sponsors WAN Civic Building Award 2014


After-party at Showroom Amsterdam on 11 September 2014

The World Architecture News (WAN) Award in the category “Civic Building” is one of the most prestigious international architecture competitions. This year, it has a new sponsor: Thonet, the traditional company from Hesse (Germany) sponsors the award, which has been presented for six years and honours original designs for civic buildings such as museums, sports facilities and embassies.

The winners will be announced on 11 September 2014 at the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (OBA), along with an exhibition of all nominated submissions. After the award presentation, Thonet invites you to an after-party at its new showroom in Amsterdam. In May 2014, the company’s largest showroom outside Germany was opened in the IJburg district in the city’s east. The new location provides the ideal environment for presenting the Living and Working segment products in alternating exhibitions.
