Digitalisation is producing the most dramatic change in our working environments since the industrial revolution. Established concepts are being turned upside down, customised work zones are evolving: modern workplaces offer both private and communicative spaces. But even in these turbulent times, the classic workstation remains the core element of any office environment – the place to concentrate and reflect on a task. Bene’s extensive Workplace Portfolio offers a complete design concept for structuring, zoning and furnishing office spaces to maximise success.
In the age of big data, digitalisation, increasing mobility, social networks and much more, our working lives are also undergoing profound change. In response to this, modern office designs include customised areas for a wide range of working styles. Within any company, the requirements of interaction, concentration or confidentiality, and the need for storage units and surfaces vary from one department to another, and according to the working style of each individual. Workplaces that facilitate both retreat and teamwork have advantages in functionality as well as individualisation, which promotes well-being, and improves both individual workflow and effective collaborative work.
Bene’s Workplace Portfolio presents a range of products designed for concentrated and reflective work, creating a wide variety of solutions for a customised working environment, in designs to suit any style. These workplace systems provide a complete solution for structuring, zoning and furnishing open-plan offices, including niches for concentrated work, and communication islands within the office space, using a wide selection of colours and materials to create an appealing ambience.
The central element of any workplace is still the desk. This is the work surface that is needed and used pretty well every day. The extensive range of desks available from Bene offers outstanding functionality, flexibility and multi-award-winning design. STUDIO by Bene and DELTA, for example, have recently been honoured with top international design awards. A wide range of frame options means Bene can create the perfect solution for any office setting and any workstation. Desks can be made either with a fixed height or height-adjustable like the Lift Desk, which is designed to allow the user to alternate between sitting and standing while working. The wide variety of options means Bene desks can offer a complete design concept for success that goes far beyond the sum of the individual parts.
“Modern office solutions include various different zones and flexible workstations that encourage people to change position according to their activities. Being able to alternate between zones for communication and concentration at work helps create a pleasant working environment and increases motivation,” explains Michael Fried, Bene’s Executive Board Member for Sales, Marketing and Innovation, describing the positive effects that optimised zone design can have on employees’ productivity. “The desk is the classic place for concentrated work and still remains the defining element of every office landscape,” concludes Fried.
