    The world’s first 3D printed office building has opened in Dubai, with Austrian company Bene being responsible for the interior design and furnishing of the building. The building was prindted within 17 days. It is just the first building of the complex.
    Office of the Future is the first building of its kind in the world and offers 250 sqm of office space. It is a workplace designed for innovation and better communication between teams. At the invitation of the Dubai government, Bene furnished the world’s first ever 3D printed office building, employing its Bene Idea Lab concept for innovative furniture and creative space. It was built to be the new location of the Dubai Futures Foundation, a government initiative aimed at promoting pioneering and innovative projects and partnerships, with an emphasis on the future of real estate, construction and design. The huge concrete elements of the building were printed in Shanghai with a 37m long 3D printer before the pieces were then shipped to the United Arab Emirates. The architects of the project estimate that printing the office instead of building it on-site has saved up to 80 pct of the construction costs, 60 pct of the labor costs and up to 60 pct of the costs of construction waste. Office of the Future is intended to become a cultural centre in the region, through a variety of public and private events.
