Ergonomic sitting

The requirements of the people in relation to their job performance grow constantly. In order to reach the business objectives, the work environment must be adapted to the increased demands. KÖHL as seating specialists know, that ergonomic seating solutions are the basis of preventing physical sitting problems.

Through intuitive and individual adaptability, relaxed sitting increases motivation and reduces downtime. KÖHL represents innovative seating solutions which offer comfort, security and support for all work movements in the workplace.

A KÖHL milestone of ergonomics

SELLEO® EDGE – an office chair range for all kind of office spaces – is an example of how KÖHL combines ergonomics, exceptional seating comfort and clear functions into a trend-setting chair concept. The concept is based – like most of the KÖHL chairs – on the following four functions:

  1. the adjustable KÖHL-Lumbar-Support (KBS®) of the Ergo-Relax backrest
  2. the multifunctional synchronised mecanism for dynamic sitting
  3. the Ergo-Relax-Clip Seat
  4. the KÖHL® AIR-SEAT

A proof for the extraordinary quality of these ergonomic features is the distinction of being certified.

Eco-effectiveness is worthwhile

KÖHL is concerned about environmental protection and sustainability. This has priority in our process of development. For the manufacture of our chairs, we take care to process biodegradable and environmental friendly materials so that all parts can easily be separated and returned to recycling. KÖHL attained through consistency of quality- and environmental management the certification ISO9001 and ISO14001.

Our focus is the cooperation with regional production partners to improve the energy balance and carbon footprint by shortening transport routes. Due to the constant modernisation of production, facilities and infrastructure KÖHL make a consistent contribution to environmental protection. In addition we provide ourselves with environmental friendly electricity: Our 3.700m2 photovoltaic roof system, with a total annual capacity of 182.000kw/h, saves 125tons of CO2 per year compared to the conventional power plant.

In other words, KÖHL produces environmentally friendly.

Eco-efficiency thanks to high recycling rate

ANTEO® – an office chair range with a recycling rate of 95% – is an example of how KÖHL eco-effectiveness turns into practice. Even for this range, high-quality and non-toxic materials and components have been selected for extended product life of our products. All components used are labelled with a material stamp, to achieve clean material separation by type and to return these components to local recycling.

But that´s not enough. KÖHL continues with the introduction of the environmental chair range ANTEO® a further sign on climate protection and plants 200 trees in the regional forests. In cooperation with the environmental organisation "plans-my-tree" and with committed companies and local forestry operations, KÖHL makes a significant contribution to CO2- neutralization. Therefore KÖHL not only ensures a healthy and relaxed sitting, but also for a healthy climate.

A layer of comfort fleece between the molded foam and the fabric contributes to a long life and promotes an air-conditioned sitting.

Bionically inspired design chair

Looking for inspiration, KÖHL has found it in Nature. Keyword – bionics. In bionics the “inventions of nature” are decrypted and translated into innovative technical solutions. Experience what KÖHL has learnt from nature – both as in the form as well in the function of seating. The organic flowing shapes provide new impulses of ergonomics, function and design. For almost any interior space, KÖHL has the perfect seating solution – over 70.000 variants for individual design. Timeless, stylish and long-lasting use.

Another successful example of product development from bionics – is the range CALIXO®. The design chair clearly demonstrates how well bionics and design can blend into each other. CALIXO® originates from the shape of a blossom. Even when watching, the selected materials and trend colours provide a visual experience. When sitting, the chair keeps its promise and gently wraps up the body with a unique sensation of comfort.
