In 2009 Bene launched a new kind of furniture: PARCS enabled unconventional office layouts, breaking away from established formats and routines. Jointly developed with the London design duo PearsonLloyd, it defined a new quality of office interaction – informal, inspirational and communicative. Bene is currently celebrating the 10-year anniversary of this colourful, creative furniture range that quickly became a classic and is now a standard feature of modern office environments.
At Maison&Objet in Paris, Bene will present its innovative solutions for tomorrow’s working environment. This will be a world characterised by design and international flair and a world in which the separation of work and leisure continues to dissolve.
In the first half of 2019 Bene met its growth targets for Germany and reported very positive business development there. The company’s branch offices in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Cologne and Munich all contributed to this strong result, together with a significant increase in the number of specialist retail partners throughout the country. With around 20% of the company’s total sales, Germany is Bene’s most important core market after Austria; medium-term plans for the international office furnishing specialist include double-digit sales growth in Germany.
Taking stock after slightly more than two years of Bene IDEA LAB, Bene Group draws a positive conclusion about this venture in its Vienna flagship store. Bene IDEA LAB is a creative space for developing innovative ideas for companies of all sizes. So far, it has hosted over 150 events with over 5,000 visitors; this is a great achievement for the Bene Group.
From 23 to 25 June 2019, Bene opened its first exhibition space in Israel, with over 100 guests, customers and friends in attendance. In 120 m² at the showroom of its local partner Global in Tel Aviv, the international office expert is presenting future-oriented office solutions for communication and exchanges as well as for management and team work in the modern office. Bene and its innovative office solutions fit Israel perfectly, as the country has positioned itself as a hub for start-ups, innovative companies, and international tech giants.
Approaching the end of a very successful first half of 2019 for Bene Switzerland, the long-established, Austrian-based company last week held the Bene Open Days in the Wallisellen showroom, from 25 to 27 June, presenting a selection of classic lines and new products. Over 100 interior architects, architects, designers, change managers and customers attended as guests of the international office furniture expert, and were clearly delighted by the innovative working environments on display, and the inspiring keynote presentations.
Last week at DENFAIR Melbourne, Australia’s largest furniture and design fair, Bene presented its multiple award-winning furniture ranges PIXEL and STUDIO by Bene and a Think Tank for the first time in Australia. In this fifth instance of DENFAIR Melbourne from 20 to 22 June, international companies and high-end brands introduced their current innovations and ideas for the home to over 8,000 visitors. This was the first year in which office furniture was also included.
The Economic Chamber of Lower Austrian (WKNÖ) honoured the best training programmes in the state at the end of May, and awarded Bene the special trophy for 2019 for having the most victorious trainees in competitions. With two first-place and one second-place finish in the State Trainee Competition 2019 in Pöchlarn, the international office furniture specialist’s next generation also had a successful start in the 2019 competition season.
The redesigned Ars Electronica Center in Linz opened to the public once again on 27 May 2019 following extensive renovation work. With a creative installation made up of more than 500 Bene PIXEL boxes, the exhibition organisers have designed an innovative Lab using the flexible modules from Bene’s PIXEL furniture range.
To celebrate Clerkenwell Design Week in London, from 21 to 23 May the Bene showroom at the beating heart of London’s design district will be transformed for three days into a creative PIXEL workshop and meeting point for members of the international architecture and design scene.

For the 10th anniversary year of the UK’s greatest design festival, more than 300 exhibitors will present their latest innovations and ideas for the future.
