Focus on personal comfort
Ahrend focusses on the vitality and productivity of your employees, not on the technology itself. The facility to personally control the workplace and indoor climate is aligned with the increasing demand for autonomy among modern employees. At Ahrend, we believe a successful interior design comes from a diverse workplace, where employees can choose which workplace suits best his or her activities.
Smart and healthy work environments
Ahrend’s services go beyond simply the design of a work environment. Together with renowned institutions and partners, Ahrend is continuously working in its InnovationLAB on new applications of technological innovations. Ahrend was the first company in its field to make the workplace ‘smart and personal’ by integrating technology into furniture, such as microchips, sensors and apps. Combining data leads to new insights, allowing you to make decisions based on facts. By measuring the actual use of the furniture, it is possible to adjust the work environment accordingly to ensure better use of both the office space and furniture. This is in line with the increasing demand for flexible and personalised work environments. This data can also be used to design work environments in a more efficient way and to reduce cleaning, maintenance and energy costs. By combining scientific research with user statistics, Ahrend puts Evidence Based Office Design into practice and paves the way for developments such as the pay-per-use business model.
All these aspects together contribute to the productivity and wellbeing of people.
