Music lovers are said to be passionate. Thomas Bene has a passion for anything related to "lifestyle". On a professional level, this refers to the office as a living space. In his free time, however, this alludes to his appreciation of music. The managing director of Bene loves to create ambiance and stimulate specific moods; for example, when he stands in as the DJ at Bene parties. Anyone who has attended those social gatherings knows why they are legendary.
Furniture, lighting, flooring and acoustics create the atmosphere at the office. And music sets the mood. This is why we created the Office.Playlist. Beyond the mainstream and without irritating ads each month we present a – subjective – selection of good office tunes.
There are many artists on the Internet who make their tracks available for free download.
"A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do," said Nick Hornby in his book High Fidelity. We face the challenge, presenting each month a selection of tunes sourced straight from the net – the Office.Playlist.
