Ahrend Recharge Collection
Working is no longer tied to an office environment. We work where and when we want to. Whether that is in the lobby of an office, hospital, school or hotel. All we need is an internet connection with our telephone. At the same time, moments of rest become increasingly important for our health.
The Recharge Collection combines working and charging in one design. The round shape of the Recharge invites you to sit down. To work, to consult or to take a break. A moment to recharge: for yourself and your device. The flexible modules offer you the choice to do what you want. Stay in charge.
Sit down and Recharge
Step away from the crowds around you. Do you want to recharge yourself, but also your mobile device? The Ahrend Recharge Collection has an optional built-in wireless charger. This way you choose where you want to work or charge. For a vital environment where the focus is on humans.
An energising design
A playful but simple design that brings every space to life. Choose one of the stylish ton-sur-ton color combinations, where the lower half has a dark shade and the upper half a light shade. An intuitive design that invites you to sit down.
Mix & match
Which size do you choose? With three different sizes, the family of elements fits in every space. Larger elements fit perfectly in a lobby or reception area. The small poufs can be used at a workplace for a short consultation. All combinations are possible!
