Designed to stand out

The Ahrend Remode is designed with sustainability and circular use as core principles. We looked at its environmental impact throughout its life cycle. From raw material production to use and reuse, down to what happens to the parts after they are no longer recyclable at the end of their lifespan. Extending its lifespan is ultimately the most sustainable way to use a product.

Weight has the greatest impact on a product's CO2 emissions. The Ahrend Remode is around 30% lighter than the average task chair, thanks to its smart, hollow structures and efficient use of materials. Its modular design makes it easy to repair, replace and recycle components. This is how we extend the lifespan of the chair as well as the materials used.

The black version of the Ahrend Remode consists of 54% recycled materials. 78% of the plastic used is recycled, of which 62% comes from the ocean. Envalior, a renowned player in the plastics industry, makes the recycled plastic - Akulon® RePurposed - from fishing nets collected along India's coastline. In this way, we contribute to cleaner oceans and create a positive social impact.

Sitting at its best

As a leader in vitalising work environments, Ahrend has developed - with the Remode - a task chair that invigorates. The chair is designed with comfort and ease of operation in mind. It features a synchro-motion mechanism, ensuring that the seat and back of the Ahrend Remode glide in unison. This promotes an active posture, even when leaning back. You can personalise all functions according to preferences. The controls are easy to reach from the sitting position. With its ergonomic design and the selected materials, the Remode feels like a sneaker that moulds to your body.
