Shanghai 2010 World Expo

A strategic partnership agreement between Vimar and the Commission of the Italian Government for Shanghai 2010 World Expo has been signed, which appoints the Marostica company supplier of the Shanghai 2010 World Expo Italian Pavilion.

Vimar will execute all of the lighting controls in the building designed by the architect Giampaolo Imbrighi, installing the cover plates and switches of Eikon Next series. In this way the entire electrical system can be controlled in total safety, also thanks to the perfect technical integration with Netsafe – the Vimar structured cabling system – which will also be installed in the pavilion.

  • With regard to the design, the Classic cover plates were chosen. Two different versions of this design will be supplied: the one in matt silver metal, and the one in mirror silver glass.
  • With its refined and elegant design and materials, Eikon Next series perfectly fits in harmoniously with the pavilion’s architecture.

The theme of the 2010 World Expo – “Better City, Better Life” – fully reflects Vimar’s mission, which is to focus its research and development investment on technological innovation that ensures ongoing improvement of lifestyles.

“Vimar is a leading company and we are pleased with its involvement in the construction of the Italian Pavilion,” commented Beniamino Quintieri, Government Commissioner for the Shanghai World Expo.
“The company was able to catch the opportunity that ties the Shanghai 2010 World Expo to its products, and it did not want to miss out on this important show promoting Made in Italy products.”

The news of Vimar being chosen supplier of the Shanghai 2010 World Expo Italian Pavilion was received by the entire company with enormous satisfaction and enthusiasm.
Vimar CEO Gualtiero Viaro stressed the pride of the company in being able to partner other leading Italian companies in taking part in a project that will attract the eyes of the world to the best Italian production has to offer.

It is the crowning of a continuous effort that in its 65-year-long history (the anniversary of its founding will fall precisely on 1 May, the day the Expo opens) has put the company in the forefront, offering the world a product completely designed and made in Italy.
