At Focus Open 2017, the Baden-Württemberg International Design Awards, Bene just received the ‘Focus Gold’ for the outstanding design quality of its PIXEL product line. Thus, Bene has once again won the most prestigious prize at this renowned ceremony, after winning in 2010 for PARCS. Following the nomination for the Austrian National Design Award in 2017, this is already the second recognition for Bene’s latest innovation. Having won more than 130 awards in recent years, the international office furniture specialists continue to impress year after year with their flair for design and innovation.
Yesterday evening at the Vienna Design Week Bene hosted a design talk with experts from the furniture, design and architecture sectors to explore how social change, digitalisation, mobility and big data, among other factors, will influence and transform the ways we work. With “EVOLUTION AT WORK”, the international office furniture producer presented its new Office Guide and opened the major special exhibition of pieces by its Danish partner, Muuto. The presentation of the winner of the “Pixel Art” design competition rounded out this inspiring evening and its exploration of the transformation of everyday workplace settings.
Big data, digitalisation, mobility and social networks are just some of the factors that are fundamentally altering our society, politics and economy and, as a result, the ways in which we work. As the leading international designer of modern working environments, Bene is dedicated to keeping ahead of the latest trends and developments in business and society and transforming this knowledge into innovative concepts and products for the working environment of tomorrow. In cooperation with 40 international experts from the business, research and arts sectors, Bene has used the digital revolution as a jumping-off point for a methodical review and comprehensive presentation of the latest trends and their impact on working environments. Bene presented the first extracts from this large-scale research project yesterday as part of an expert roundtable in Vienna and has published them online at futureofwork.bene.com. The Future Report follows in the tradition of the company’s two previous Trend Reports, both well received by the public. Bene will release bound copies of the Future Report, including all interview material, in early 2018.
Bene’s newly designed, forward-looking showrooms in Austria, Germany, and many other international locations, now present a consistent company style and image. These developments will be followed by the publication this autumn of a new report exploring the fundamental changes taking place in office work, now and in the future. The Austrian office furnishings experts demonstrate their pioneering role as leading international office furniture manufacturers for quality, innovation and design.
The Bene IDEA LAB has moved to an even more attractive area in the Vienna flagship store and reopened its doors. The most up-to-date creative space in town is available once again for the development of forward-thinking ideas and can now be reserved for groups of up to 50 people. Bene also has an IDEA LAB in Munich which is available for booking.
On the heels of its great success at the Salone del Mobile.Milano, Bene will be showcasing its latest innovation, PIXEL, from 23 to 25 May at Clerkenwell Design Week in London. Bene will transform its showroom in the heart of the city’s design district into a dynamic PIXEL pop-up ideas workshop.
The Salone del Mobile.Milano, one of the world’s largest and most important furniture and design trade fairs, is an annual highlight of Milan’s event calendar. This year Bene made the versatility of its latest innovation, “PIXEL by BENE”, tangible and impressed visitors with its pioneering concepts for do-it-yourself rooms that inspire creative thinking. The Salone, which this year took place between 4–9 April and drew more than 300,000 visitors, offered over 200,000 m2 of exhibition space to some 2,000 international firms and high-end brands.
Tuesday evening, the international office furniture experts Bene presented PIXEL, the latest member of its product range, in front of an audience of over 200 invited guests at its flagship store in Vienna. PIXEL is made up of boxes made from unprocessed pine plywood, which enable countless different configurations for creative interior design, thereby forming the basis for a new corporate meeting culture.
