Bencore has always had a strong focus on sustainability; its primary goal is to provide architects and designers with increasingly green solutions. As is the case with the new Magic Leap headquarters, a project by Glavovic Studio architecture firm, in Plantation, Florida. For this massive workspace, Bencore employed Lightben for the main wall on which the building’s design concept is developed. In this project, Lightben is backlit, making it possible to create light effects on surfaces and in the space.
