Triple awards for impressive office design

Bene presented a modern office environment as a lively city landscape at Office Next Moscow 2013

Vienna/Moscow, 13 June 2013: At the Office Next 2013 trade show in Moscow, Bene
presented a modern office environment as a lively city landscape. Under the motto
“Choose the place you need,” the international office expert presented new
products like DOCKLANDS, the alternative workplace for temporary activities,
CUBE_S, modular workplaces for stationary work with integrated storage space,
and the successful PARCS product family for the communicative midzone. As the
crowning finale of this year’s trade show, three projects were honoured with the
Best Office Awards.

This fourth annual Office Next show was held from 14 - 16 May 2013 at the Design Centre
Artplay in Moscow. The 62 exhibitors, of which 40 are international companies, presented
their product designs in an area of about 3,000 square metres. With its 4,000 visitors - an
increase of 30 per cent compared to the previous year - Office Next is one of Russia’s
most important trade fairs for the office industry and retailers, and is considered a
meeting point for Moscow’s design and interior architecture scene. The event is based on
three pillars: TRENDS - the presentation of new products, TALKS – a comprehensive
framework programme with interesting lectures, and AWARDS – a competition for the
best international office projects.

Best Office Awards 2013
The Best Office Award is a key element in the international Office Next trend forum. A
jury of international experts headed by Andrey V. Bokov, president of the Union of
Russian Architects, selected eleven winning projects from a total of 93 submissions. Bene
was delighted to receive triple honours: L´Oréal Professional Beauty Academy (category:
Design Idea); S7 Airlines (category: Audience Prize) and SNS (category: Best Executive
As a full-service provider, Bene offers attractive and functional products and furniture
systems for every zone in a modern office. These are tailored to fit their purpose in We,
Me and Workplaces. Because good office design must enable both concentration and
cooperation, and promote inspiration as well as recreation.
We-Places are designed for cooperative activities and offer the ideal environment for
collaboration and communication in groups of different sizes, for example the PARCS
product family. Me-Places, on the other hand, offer space for concentrated work and
privacy – above all in an open-plan office. DOCKLANDS, by the London designer duo
PearsonLloyd, offers a new, alternative workspace line, ideally suited to temporary
activities. For the Workplaces, the traditional workstations, Bene is presenting CUBE_S:
new possibilities for designing and structuring open-plan office landscapes.
“With our product portfolio, we offer a broad range of products for the various different
types of work and can thus create office situations that are completely geared to the
activity profiles and individual needs of the users.” says Christian Schwarz, Vice
President Bene RUS/CIS/CEE.
