‘Can furnishings and interior design promote better communication?’ This was the central question of the scientific analysis for a research project. The object of the study: a test installation of Bene's PARCS range that can be used in a variety of ways. The project required an open space as the foundation for high-quality interaction. The design and furnishing of the university's foyer and balcony, which are used in various different ways in everyday student life, were aimed to be as attractive as possible and oriented towards facilitating every kind of meeting. Thanks to its versatility, PARCS offers an ideal framework for various communication requirements, especially in educational spaces. Because contemporary teaching methods require intelligent, communicative surroundings that inspire and promote creativity.



The PARCS furniture range is a prime example of innovative design.
