The world's largest design fair took place between 4–9 April: the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. Major brands and up-and-coming international designers presented the trends of tomorrow. PIXEL by Bene obviously had to take part.
The Salone Internazionale del Mobile has been the centrepiece of the international scene every spring for 56 years now. Around 2,000 companies presented the latest design trends over approx. 200,000 m2 of exhibition space. More than 3,000 visitors came in search of inspiration this year. The six days also included around 1,300 different events. The Salone Ufficio takes place every two years as part of the Salone Internazionale. This year’s "International Biennial Workspace Exhibition", originally established in 1982, was devoted to the theme "Workplace 3.0". Around 120 exhibitors presented their solutions for the working environment over approx. 10,000 m2 of exhibition space.
Innovation is not a trend, but a critical component if you want to really set yourself apart. As a business within a highly competitive market. As a group within our society. And as an individual, at home and in the workplace.
Bene and Interface are proud to announce their new partner ship with the permanent innovation platform LIVING TOMORROW. What will the future be like? Discover the answer at our inauguration event!
The Bene New Year card is something quite special and new every year. Read the story behind this season’s card in our magazine.

No more blah blah... MORE IDEAS! Bene takes a stand against the dull routine of everyday office life.
To celebrate the opening night of this year’s Orgatec, we thought we'd organise something special. Our Cologne flagship showroom will be transformed into a „Playground for Creativity“, and we invite all free thinkers and creative minds to join us there!
After a successful third edition of the Wroclove Design Festival, Wroclaw was recognised as a capital of European Design and Applied Arts. At this year’s event dozens of companies presented their latest innovations and experience in the field of functional design, demonstrating the modernity and attractiveness of products that have been created for everyday use. This year’s participants included the Austrian furniture manufacturer Bene, a leading player in the European market for innovative office concepts.
The Wroclove Design Festival is an International Festival that celebrates “good pro-jects” and is a common initiative of the charitable foundation Open Mind and Grupa-kreatywni.pl. Running from 18th to 22nd May 2016 at Aleja Bielany, Poland’s largest shopping centre, a variety of furniture and interior design products were presented to provide an insight into the significance of design in today’s world and in accordance with the festival’s motto - FOR SALE: DESIGN.
During the event, Bene - an expert in the field of interior office space design, presented a range of work space solutions for meeting and teamwork areas as part of a special exhibition entitled ‘Austrian Design Explosion’. The exhibition, organised and supported by the Austrian Embassy, aimed to highlight how the work of designers, technologists and researchers has helped to create a better and more beautiful world, from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution right up to today’s digital age. These changes have also been applied to the office, which has transformed from a purely functional space to one that is required to support our daily work, as well as the company in its pursuit of business success.
At the invitation of the Dubai government, Bene will furnish the world’s first ever 3D-printed office building with innovative furniture and a future-oriented innovation area, the Bene IDEA LAB. The “Office of the Future” is expected to open in the spring of 2016.
The “Office of the Future” is the first major project of the Dubai Futures Foundation, a government initiative aimed at promoting pioneering and innovative projects and partnerships. The project forms part of a comprehensive strategy that presents innovative solutions to the challenges of the 21st century. The future of real estate, construction, and design is a recurring theme.
Bene was chosen as an interior design partner for this ambitious building, providing a design concept that is future-oriented and promotes innovation.
The design for the space and the furnishing will be tailored to meet the needs of tomorrow’s working environment. The space has an open and flexible design and is suitable for a wide variety of potential applications and team sizes. The aim is for the building to become an established cultural centre in the region, through a mix of public and private events.
Things we are in the office: busy, active, creative, sometimes tired, sometimes happy. The new "I AM Bene" wallpapers help you to express your current state of mind on your computer screen.

On May 29th, leading corporate representatives, innovation experts and startups came together for the 2nd True Economy Forum. Amidst them: VerVieVas @ the Bene Nice Wall!
Once again we had the chance to accompany inspiring keynotes by amazing speakers live on stage with Graphic Recording on our continuous frameless interactive Wall.
The True Economy Forum 2015 transformed the top floor of the Vienna imperial palace into an executive academy for corporate-startup-collaboration. And that is exactly what the agenda was all about: Amazing keynotes, interesting workshops and various networking opportunities brought startups and established companies together! In order to capture all the profound experience of the speakers, a VerVieVas creative-team (Alexandra Brenner & Fridolin Brandl) accompanied them throughout the day with graphic recordings on the Bene Nice Wall live on stage.
