Bene, one of the leading companies of the European office furniture industry, is the first Austrian company to achieve certification under ISO 38200, the new standard recognising a monitored chain of custody for wood and wood-based products, cork and lignified materials.

Society, politics, economics and thus our entire working lives are changing rapidly. The current trends and their impact on the working environment, their practical implementation options and approaches to satisfy the growing need for simplification were the topics discussed by the international office furniture specialist Bene last night during an exclusive event in the Bene Showroom in Wallisellen. The event was spearheaded by Patrick Benz, who became Bene’s Country Manager this May.
As never before, rapid change is globally affecting every aspect of our society, politics, economy and consequently also our working lives. As part of a large-scale study, Bene has conducted interviews and discussions with more than 40 international experts in order to identify current trends, give brief descriptions of them, and present an overview of their potential impact on working environments. Bene recently published the results of this research project as the Future of Work Report 2018 and discussed them last week as part of an exclusive event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with around 50 invited designers and consultants.
Following the iF DESIGN AWARD in March 2018, STUDIO by Bene has now also been awarded the Red Dot Award, the renowned German design prize. The latest workplace system from the Bene think tank convinced the international expert jury with its carefully thought-out and innovative design. This means that, as of today, STUDIO by Bene bears the winning label "Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018".
Bene, one of the leading companies in the European office furniture industry, achieved very pleasing results in the 2017 financial year, with an EBIT of EUR 7.3 million and an EBIT margin of 5.4%. The company’s equity ratio rose to 42.7% as at 31 December 2017, reflecting the robust capital structure these international office furniture experts have established. Bene expects this strong performance to be maintained in 2018.
PIXEL continues to collect international design awards: the prestigious trade magazine “Das Büro” (“The Office”) just selected Bene’s flexible components for the design of multifunctional furniture settings as the “#1 office product 2018”. Following Focus Gold, German Design Award and iF Design Award in Gold a few days ago, this is already the fourth accolade for the innovative product line which Bene first presented in 2017.
PIXEL, the flexible module for designing multifunctional furniture settings by Bene, received the Gold iF Design Award on Friday, 9 March 2018. Following the RF wall in 2008 and TIMBA table in 2015, Bene has now received this prestigious award for the third time. The latest product line – STUDIO by Bene – was also a winner at the iF Design Awards. These design awards once again highlight the excellent design quality of Bene products.
