Following the iF DESIGN AWARD in March 2018, STUDIO by Bene has now also been awarded the Red Dot Award, the renowned German design prize. The latest workplace system from the Bene think tank convinced the international expert jury with its carefully thought-out and innovative design. This means that, as of today, STUDIO by Bene bears the winning label “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018”.
Bene, one of the leading companies in the European office furniture industry, achieved very pleasing results in the 2017 financial year, with an EBIT of EUR 7.3 million and an EBIT margin of 5.4%. The company’s equity ratio rose to 42.7% as at 31 December 2017, reflecting the robust capital structure these international office furniture experts have established. Bene expects this strong performance to be maintained in 2018.
Effective immediately, the international office furniture expert Bene is supporting a project which aims to give children and young people a playful introduction to the topic of digitalisation: Otelo futurespace – the digital playground. The project’s opening week launches on 4 April 2018 at the ARS Electronica Center in Linz, followed by a two-week tour of schools in Upper Austria, beginning on 9 April 2018. As funding partner, Bene is providing the project with a total of 120 PIXEL modules.
PIXEL continues to collect international design awards: the prestigious trade magazine “Das Büro” (“The Office”) just selected Bene’s flexible components for the design of multifunctional furniture settings as the “#1 office product 2018”. Following Focus Gold, German Design Award and iF Design Award in Gold a few days ago, this is already the fourth accolade for the innovative product line which Bene first presented in 2017.
PIXEL, the flexible module for designing multifunctional furniture settings by Bene, received the Gold iF Design Award on Friday, 9 March 2018. Following the RF wall in 2008 and TIMBA table in 2015, Bene has now received this prestigious award for the third time. The latest product line – STUDIO by Bene – was also a winner at the iF Design Awards. These design awards once again highlight the excellent design quality of Bene products.
Last week at Somerset House in London, Bene, the international office furniture experts, held a presentation for more than 400 invited guests to launch the company’s latest innovation: STUDIO by Bene. This contemporary, modular workplace system is designed for people who want to make the most of their individuality and creativity at work as well as outside it.
Bene, the leading international specialist in the design and furnishing of inspiring office and working environments, opened its new showroom in Frankfurt yesterday with a grand opening event. In addition to this main site in Frankfurt’s Taunus Tower, Bene also has locations in Germany in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Munich.
Inspiring, motivating, results-oriented: that is what Bene stands for and this is how the international expert for office furniture presents itself to the outside world – in their showrooms around the globe and in their own working environments. Against the background of changing environments in the field of office work, Bene rebuilt its head office in Waidhofen/Ybbs last year and totally redesigned it. This resulted in a completely new office, work and presentation concept: the “Bene Inspiration Center” for employees, customers, partners and guests, which was among the top ten projects yesterday at this year’s “Office of the Year” Awards.
In all sectors, the swift pace of changes in general conditions is influencing society, politics, the economy and therefore, our work lives as never before. As part of a large-scale study, Bene has conducted interviews and discussions with more than 40 international experts in order to identify current trends, give brief descriptions of them, and present an overview of their potential impact on working environments. The results of this research project have just been published by Bene as the Future of Work Report 2018 and posted online at http://futureofwork.bene.com/ .
A fixture in Dubai since 2003, Bene hosted a festive event on 12 December to celebrate the opening of its newest showroom and a new strategic partnership with a2z in Dubai, ringing in the latest phase of its expansion into the Middle East & North Africa region.
