TIMBA, Bene’s new product range designed by PearsonLloyd, has already been awarded the “iF GOLD AWARD” and the “Interior Innovation Award” this year. The TIMBA Table has now also received a further prestigious award with the “Design Guild Mark 2015”. This is also the 126th prize that Bene has been awarded for design in the past five years.
The “Design Guild Mark” provides further proof of the high level of design expertise and quality of Bene’s products and solutions and once again confirms its reputation as a trendsetter and innovation leader in the industry. The international furniture expert has always worked intensely on the interplay between office space and productivity – and constantly creates the right solutions for its customers through its products.
“We developed TIMBA expressly for the purposes of providing a hub for teams and creating an atmosphere which encourages good ideas and communication”, says Michael Fried, Member of the Executive Board responsible for Sales and Marketing at Bene. “The best ideas are not solo efforts – cooperation and creative collaboration are the factors which create innovation and promote further development in companies.”
Pleasant and welcoming, the TIMBA Table acts as the focal point of a team and its many different activities – and invites team members to collaborate. “Just like at home, a shared table takes on a key role in an office. It’s a place to meet, eat, talk, create ideas, drink coffee, dream of a better future”, explains Tom Lloyd from London-based design duo PearsonLloyd.
The British design studio has always challenged the domineering technoid aesthetics in offices and creates emotional contrasts to system furniture. The TIMBA Table is a celebration of the return of wood as a characteristic feature in the office. The natural and sustainable material exudes warmth and supports a feeling of being at home. The sophisticated Turn Table on the tabletop also allows easy access to power connections and the data network
The Design Guild Mark is awarded annually by the British Furniture Maker’s Company and is one of the most prestigious prizes awarded for British design work. Bene products designed by PearsonLloyd have already won over the jury twice before: the innovative swivel chair RIYA received the award in 2014, while the successful PARCS series was honoured in 2010.
