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.
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.
