In 2009 a new kind of furniture was launched: PARCS inspired unconventional office layouts, breaking out from established formats and routines. Jointly developed by the London design duo PearsonLloyd, it defined a new style of office interaction – informal, inspirational and communicative. We celebrate 10 years of PARCS and revisit the background to this success story.
Nine young men and women sit in a circle on wooden stools. They are here together to discuss the future of work. These entrepreneurs, influencers and managers, already have a good amount of work life experience to know how it all goes, or at least they have an inkling of how it does. But what they certainty have a good idea about is what the working world might look like in ten or twenty years’ time.
Over the course of two hours themes including artificial intelligence, robotics, workplace dynamics and management systems, as well as personal objectives and the meaning of work, are explored professionally and with purpose. And with empathy, too!
Bene London celebrated this year’s opening of Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) with first night party attended by over 300 invited guests. The launch of the STUDIO Workbench surrounded by PIXEL boxes was a success.
For innovation, we need freedom to think and act, methodology and ultimately inspiring spaces.
How will we work in the future? What will change? What are the most important trends? These and other questions will be discussed at our "Future of Work" session in Kuwait City on April 17th 2019.
A kaleidoscope shows us beautiful designs made from many different shapes. Constantly shifting components and creating something new. The same is true for varied product ranges such as STUDIO, PIXEL and the WORKPLACE Portfolio.
Pioneering concepts for the working environment of the future: As never before, rapid change is affecting every aspect of our society, politics, economy and consequently also our working lives. As part of a large-scale study, Bene conducted interviews and discussions with more than 40 international experts in order to identify current trends, summarise them, and present an overview of their potential impact on working environments. The results of this research project have just been published by Bene as the Future of Work Report 2018, now available online at http://futureofwork.bene.com/.
