The Austrain manufacturer Bene recently presented this new family of office furniture designed by the British PearsonLloyd.

‘PARCS’ is the result of collaboration between Bene and PearsonLloyd that started at Orgatec 2006 in Cologne, Germany. An informal meeting revealed the first notions for New Meeting Environments – a research project initialised by Pearson Lloyd and Bene. They discussed a different kind of furniture for the middle zone: these new zones and areas in today’s office are a counter point to traditional workstations.

PearsonLloyd initially played the elimination game – identifying the territory that was definitely not part of New Meeting Environments. It was agreed that the formality of the boardroom or the acoustic privacy of an enclosed meeting room was outside the project’s remit, as was fixed, desk based activity. Six months later, PearsonLloyd presented their findings and a project proposal.

The result of this intense collaboration is a range of monolithic elements which create spaces that facilitate different types of activities without defining precisely how people are going to use them.

“The subtlety of getting the right signals that will engage with people; where it will have the right sense of where technology works with it, where space works with it; where light works with it – these are not things you can ask questions about in order to get a didactic answer. We tried to find out what will trigger an emotional response in people that will make them feel like using a space in a certain way or go to a place for a particular need.” says Tom Lloyd, PearsonLloyd.
