The best ideas don’t come about from working alone – complex tasks and interdisciplinary projects require teamwork. But what does good teamwork require? How can ideas be turned into innovation? And what contribution can be made by office spaces? Bene presented its latest workplace concepts and new products for Teamwork 2.0 at B1, Victoria House in Central London. Designers Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd of London studio PearsonLloyd, gave an exciting keynote presentation to open proceedings. A fun packed party was organised to celebrate the 5th anniversary of PARCS, Bene’s successful range of furniture by PearsonLloyd– as well as the fruitful cooperation of this successful designstudio with Bene, together changing the office world.
Today Bene, the international specialist for the design and decoration of modern office and work spaces, is starting a new blog for the work environment: “Bene Daily” is now delivering an easy-to-cook recipe for a light lunch or a healthy snack for breaks at the office on a daily basis. This “Bene Lunchtime” is supplemented by “Bene Fit,” simple training sessions to promote increased exercise in the office. Because even the ancient Romans and Greeks were certain: a healthy mind means a healthy body. Only those individuals who are healthy will stay motivated and productive over time.
RIYA wins another award: The Bene swivel chair, designed by PearsonLloyd, wins silver at Focus Open 2014. Focus Open is the international design prize awarded by the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The swivel chair, which has already won numerous prizes, scores with its unique design and intuitive handling. RIYA adapts to the user’s body and encourages movement around the different zones and areas of the open office.
The best ideas don’t come about from working alone – complex tasks and interdisciplinary projects require teamwork. But what does good teamwork require? How are ideas turned to innovation(s)? And what can office spaces bring to the table? As part of this year’s VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, international experts representing a variety of fields explored these and other related themes at the “CO-CREATING TOMORROW” expert talk, held at Bene’s flagship store in Vienna.
In collaboration with the start-up we-inspire, a spin-off from the University of Applied Sciences of Upper Austria, Bene has developed a room module for meetings, brainstorming sessions and visual presentations: the Nice Wall powered by we-inspire, a continuous frameless and interactive wall which can be freely scaled up to 30 metres in length. It makes teamwork more efficient and enables new working methods that actively involve all participants. By combining the Nice Wall with the upholstered furniture elements from Bene‘s successful PARCS series any office space can be turned into a multimedia innovation area – for interactive cooperation and exchange in the living office.
The Bene Group, which is listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange, presented its new sales strategy at a press briefing today. With this strategy, the international expert for forward-looking office solutions plans to increase its sales penetration in existing and new markets and to raise the Group’s sales to EUR 200 million over the medium term. The new sales concept is already at the implementation stage.
Bene AG, which is listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange, took numerous steps during the past financial year (1 Feb. 2013-31 Jan. 2014) to lay the foundation for an operational turnaround and a sustainable positive development of the Austrian premium label.
