1. For the first time you support the MCBW as a network partner. Why is a sponsorship of interest to you?
The MCBW is an event format that animates the city and makes you want to discover new things. We like to support local initiatives, especially if they manage to combine interesting people from the fields of design, architecture and business. In addition, the design theme naturally plays a central role for our company Bene.
2. Why do you invest in design particularly?
For us as a manufacturer of office furniture, the workplace is not only the surface on which to write. The office of today can be much more: it is a place of exchange, a space for communication and collaboration – a place where the corporate culture can be experienced spatially. Good design is an essential factor to this experience. For us, our love to design is reflected in thoughtful products with high demands on functionality, quality and design.
3. In your opinion, what characterises the MCBW 2016?
We were delighted to be a sponsoring partner and participant of the MCBW 2016. This year, once again, the MCBW has lived up to its name as Germany’s largest design event. We were particularly impressed with the multifaceted and high-profile program.
