Design and production company METAPhrenie is establishing a presence in the Middle East with the uptake of commercial property in Dubai.
The company, headed by Andrea Dionisio and based principally in Berlin, has taken on space at the Business Central Towers on Sheikh Zayed Rd, placing it in the heart of the emirate's burgeoning media industry.
Ms Dionisio said that the company will continue to promote its collaborative and synergistic approach to design, animation and live-action direction.
"Over the last three years we have been receiving increasing invitations to tender for projects in this region and it made sense to base ourselves in a location which is enthusiastic and receptive," she said.
METAPhrenie was established in 2006 and quickly won the attention of several big names in the Middle East, with Al Dawri & Al Kass and Al Jazeera Sport among their recent clients.
The company was also triumphant at the Promax BDA Arabia Award, with the group taking home five accolades earlier this month.
