Bene continues to sweep the board for international design awards. DELTA and PIXEL were the two innovative products from Bene honoured at the German Design Award 2018. The DELTA table system was declared a winner and the PIXEL furniture set was honoured with a Special Mention. These premium international awards once again affirm the quality and strength of designs from the experts in pioneering office furniture.
Following on from "Focus Gold" two weeks ago at this year's Focus Open 2017, Bene has now also been honoured at the German Design Award 2018 for "the unique strength of its ground-breaking designs in the international design landscape". With the DELTA table system and innovative PIXEL furniture set, the international jury of experts honoured Bene's two latest innovations, and also paid tribute to the office furniture expert's many years of continuous expertise in design and innovation, and its pioneering role in the sector – recognising numerous trends early and playing an influential part in shaping these.
The German Design Award is the international premium prize awarded by the "German Design Council". The awards go to top-quality products and projects in product and communication design, all of which are pioneering in the international design scene. Launched in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the most well-respected design competitions in the world, and is held in high regard both professionally and among the general public. The internationally renowned jury consists of design experts from the worlds of business, education, and science, as well as from the design industry. This year they selected the best of the best in design solutions from over 5,000 entries. Only products that demonstrate their ability to stand out amongst the competition through their design quality were admitted to the contest.
“Bene has always identified trends at an early stage and thanks to its expertise in solutions, and close collaboration with international designers, the company constantly develops new products and the solutions required for the working environments of the future. These latest accolades from the German Design Award 2018 strengthen our intention to continue consistently down this route and to maintain our focus on functionality and design in equal measure," says Michael Fried, Executive Board Member for Sales, Marketing and Innovation at Bene, commenting on the latest awards.
DELTA named winner
With the winner’s award, the jury paid tribute to the DELTA table system developed by Bene as a first class achievement in international design. DELTA brings functional comfort to the workplace with its distinctive table frame made of steel or oak. As a further development of the successful T-Platform generation of tables, DELTA can be used as a single or double workstation, a workbench or a meeting table for up to 12 people. In this way DELTA provides a consistent and contemporary design for all areas of the office.
PIXEL awarded a Special Mention
The Jury awards a Special Mention to those works with designs that feature particularly successful aspects or solutions – an award which honours the commitment shown by companies and designers. With PIXEL, Bene has created modules which can be easily transformed into a table, a bench, a stool, or even a rostrum with just a few manoeuvres, opening up new possibilities for collaborative work. Bene’s innovative solution has the right answer to the increasing demands for spaces that enable creative processes to thrive,
Following numerous awards, such as the Identity Design Award 2016, the ICONIC Award 2017, the 2A Asia Architecture Award 2016, the German Design Award 2017, the iF DESIGN AWARD and most recently Focus Gold, the shower of accolades shows no sign of stopping in 2017. The full list of design prizes awarded to Bene is much longer. More than 130 awards in recent years underscore Bene’s expertise in design and innovation.
