Ecodesign

Back in the 90s, Ahrend was involved in the development of Ecodesign, the European guideline for environmentally-friendly product design. New products are always designed in a modular way in accordance with these guidelines, and components and materials are easily separated for recycling and reuse. We looked at a range of furnishing solutions and improved them according to the Ecodesign directive. The A220 office chair from 1994 was one of the first Ecodesign products in the world. Since then, the Ecodesign principles have been a standard feature of our product development.

Cradle-to-cradle

We have also integrated the cradle-to-cradle principle into our product development. Not only do we ensure a reduction in material use, we also look at the quality of the used materials. Ideally, in the Circular Economy you use only good quality, healthy and safe materials.

An independent external party (EPEA) analyses the circular properties of our materials. This is how we know that only safe substances are used at our manufacturing sites: safe for everyone who produces the materials, for our co-workers who work with the materials and also for our customers who use our products. It’s in the interest of everyone’s well-being and that of the environment too.

Examples: Well Armchair and Well Circular Black

The most circular models in the Well Collection are the PET felt Armchair and the Circular Black. The seat of the Circular Black is made of polypropylene: a 100% recycled post-consumer plastic. No concessions have been made in terms of style, comfort or quality.
