About us

The Company

Urban World is a resourceful company known to design and supply elegant, modern & practical office furniture solutions to public & private corporations throughout South Africa; from firms with just a handful of employees to multi-nationals with thousands. In addition, it is innovative & flexible in its ability to match client with product, competitive in its pricing structure and thrives on ensuring that all projects are attended to personally. We have three experienced installation teams that travel throughout South Africa and neighbouring countries to assemble the new office furniture and assist with internal moves. 

Moving premises, upgrading existing office areas or needing people moved within the building can be very daunting. If you need advice & assistance with space-planning, it is readily available for all our clients. Floor plans are drawn up on AutoCAD and can either be supplied via e-mail or hard copy.

"The doors between the old man today and the child are still open, wide open. I can stroll through my grandmother's house and know exactly where the pictures are, the furniture was, how it looked, the voice, the smells. I can move from my bed at night today to my childhood in less than a second.”
- Ingmar Bergman

Going Eco Friendly

Loving Our World

We believe in sustainability & are therefore actively involved in motivating our manufacturers to ‘go green’.

There is now a much greater choice in the selection of desks, chairs, screens & cupboards which are manufactured from more eco-friendly materials such as E1 particle board with a lower formaldehyde content; water-based lacquers; plywood products & fabrics woven in factories meeting Green Building Council standards. A wide range of accessories made locally from re-cycled materials is also available.

If you are interested in creating a green working environment, we can assist with your selection of furniture to help you create a more natural & responsible office environment whilst still maintaining colour & texture.
