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.
At a time when big data, digitalisation, mobility, social networks and much more are having an unprecedented impact on society, politics and business, working environments are also changing rapidly. Bene has tracked these developments consistently, keeping up with the latest trends and helping to shape new ideas, so that they can inspire and advise companies as they create new working environments. In the Wallisellen showroom last week, Bene presented their latest innovations and office solutions for today and the future.
This international office furnishing company from Austria has since 1790 – over 225 years now – always combined tradition with innovation and award-winning design style. It is now seven years since Bene opened its own showroom in Wallisellen, and the company has enjoyed a very successful first half of the year, with numerous exciting projects of all sizes, and a significant increase in sales. The office furniture expert celebrated this with the Bene Open Days, from 25 to 27 June 2019 in the showroom, where their extensive portfolio of products and design solutions was presented to customers, partners and friends. Classic lines such as PARCS and TIMBA were on display, alongside the latest innovations from the Bene product workshop, such as LEVEL LIFT PURE, PIXEL and STUDIO by Bene. A product display by the Danish design company Muuto, and the launch of an xchange design prototype by Daniel Korb complemented this wide-ranging design showcase. Keynote presentations by Nadine Waldvogel, BSO proprietor, coach and organisational consultant, Daniel Korb, interior architect and product designer, and Prof. Peter Schwehr, head of the Competence Center for Typology & Planning in Architecture (CCTP) in Lucerne, provided the basis for fascinating discussions about the “future of work” – the theme of Bene’s “Future of Work Report 2018”, published last year, presenting ground-breaking ideas on the working environment of the future.
“The world we live in moves ever faster, and our working environments are also changing rapidly as a result. Flexibility, teamwork, creativity and initiative are just some of the key related concepts that Bene addresses in the development of innovative office solutions, and which are important here in Switzerland too,” says Michael Fried, Bene’s Executive Board Member for Sales, Marketing and Innovation, delighted with the positive feedback on the open days, and the excellent growth of Bene in Switzerland.
