The need for social contact despite physical distancing: Bene is rising to the challenge, as we prepare for the “new normal” in the office. “SHIELDED by Bene” is a transparent, mobile protective screen designed by the international office expert, offering a simple way to separate workstations from each other, and so provide a safe working environment.
The future of work offers both businesses and employees opportunities to shape their environment. In collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute, Bene surveyed 1,200 people in 34 countries, to provide some fresh insight and food for thought in its new “Challenge the Future of Work” report. By what means can work be successful and fulfilling is a question posed against the backdrop not only of current developments, but also of digitalisation, which is synonymous with increasingly rapid change in all sectors.
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.
White-collar workers spend around 55,000 hours of their working lives sitting down. This has several health-related consequences, such as tension, back and neck pain, reduced performance, fatigue, and lack of concentration and motivation. The causes of such problems are frequently a lack of movement and sitting for long periods of time. To counter this lack of movement, the international office furniture specialist Bene offers height-adjustable tables and flexible office environments, to help workers keep their bodies and minds moving.
Yesterday evening at the Vienna Design Week Bene hosted a design talk with experts from the furniture, design and architecture sectors to explore how social change, digitalisation, mobility and big data, among other factors, will influence and transform the ways we work. With “EVOLUTION AT WORK”, the international office furniture producer presented its new Office Guide and opened the major special exhibition of pieces by its Danish partner, Muuto. The presentation of the winner of the “Pixel Art” design competition rounded out this inspiring evening and its exploration of the transformation of everyday workplace settings.
Big data, digitalisation, mobility and social networks are just some of the factors that are fundamentally altering our society, politics and economy and, as a result, the ways in which we work. As the leading international designer of modern working environments, Bene is dedicated to keeping ahead of the latest trends and developments in business and society and transforming this knowledge into innovative concepts and products for the working environment of tomorrow. In cooperation with 40 international experts from the business, research and arts sectors, Bene has used the digital revolution as a jumping-off point for a methodical review and comprehensive presentation of the latest trends and their impact on working environments. Bene presented the first extracts from this large-scale research project yesterday as part of an expert roundtable in Vienna and has published them online at futureofwork.bene.com. The Future Report follows in the tradition of the company’s two previous Trend Reports, both well received by the public. Bene will release bound copies of the Future Report, including all interview material, in early 2018.
The Bene IDEA LAB has moved to an even more attractive area in the Vienna flagship store and reopened its doors. The most up-to-date creative space in town is available once again for the development of forward-thinking ideas and can now be reserved for groups of up to 50 people. Bene also has an IDEA LAB in Munich which is available for booking.
Mit einem spannenden Auftrag in Dubai ist Bene erfolgreich in das erste Quartal 2016 gestartet. Der internationale Büromöbelexperte wird auf Einladung des Dubai Government das erste Bürogebäude der Welt im 3-D Druckverfahren mit innovativen Möbeln und einem zukunftsorientierten Innovationsraum, dem Bene IDEA LAB, ausstatten. Das „Office of the Future“ wird voraussichtlich im Frühjahr 2016 eröffnet werden.
Today Bene, the international specialist for the design and decoration of modern office and work spaces, is starting a new blog for the work environment: “Bene Daily” is now delivering an easy-to-cook recipe for a light lunch or a healthy snack for breaks at the office on a daily basis. This “Bene Lunchtime” is supplemented by “Bene Fit,” simple training sessions to promote increased exercise in the office. Because even the ancient Romans and Greeks were certain: a healthy mind means a healthy body. Only those individuals who are healthy will stay motivated and productive over time.
