Bene @ Wroclove Design Day in Wrocław

Design Day Wroclove

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.

Bene Office Maker: experience the ideal office!

Bene Office Maker

Bene is publishing an innovative online tool to design office environments: The Bene Office Maker (officemaker.bene.com) is a new online application that makes the design of office spaces delightfully easy.

When you start planning an office space, you may quickly find that it’s much harder than you initially thought it would be. What does a modern office actually do? What needs to be considered? And how can an office space perfectly support a company’s culture and processes?”

This is why Bene developed the Office Maker, a handy online tool to offer support in the initial phases of office space design. The Bene Office Maker is a digital tool that enables a conveniently easy visualisation of office settings. The online application just asks a few simple questions about the user’s company, work methods and workflows.
