OUR PHILOSOPHY

These four elements are intrinsic to all development, production and service processes.

Koehl prides itself in high performance, quality chairs and a responsive, reliable service that consistently exceeds customer expectations and project deadlines.

ECOLOGY & SUSTAINABILITY

We neutralize the impact of CO2 from production processes

KOHL has been investing in the conservation of energy and prevention of environmentally unfriendly processes for over 30 years (see the KOHL Timeline in News & Events.

Material Health, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy Use, Water Stewardship, and Social Responsibility are all factors in the production of KOHL chairs,

We work with regional production partners to improve the energy balance and carbon footprint by minimising transport routes.

Constant modernisation of production, facilities and infrastructure assures environmental protection.  The offices and factory are powered by solar and biomass systems.  Our 3.700m2 solar panelled roof has an annual capacity of 182.000kw/h which saves 125 tons of CO2 per year compared to the conventional power plant. All this enables us to achieve the highest ecological and environmental standards for production and processes regarding ISO 14001, 14024, 14025.

KOHL’s commitment to our ecological future is proven by our actions impact with this Cradle to Cradle philosophy. We have also planted 200 trees in the regional forests

For example the top selling ANTEO® task chair is 95% recyclable. As you would expect Koehl have selected high-quality and non-toxic materials and components for extended product life. All components used are labelled with a material stamp, to achieve clean material separation by type and to return these components to local recycling.

KÖHL a healthier way of sitting that’s better for the environment.

ERGONOMICS FUNCTION & WELLBEING

Our Body Responsive Seating makes your workplace a more comfortable experience

Modern working means that people move, teams change and departments are regularly re-organising. Work modes throughout the day are quite diverse. They need to adapt with the demands of the person and their working requirements.

KÖHL as seating specialists know, that ergonomic seating solutions are the basis of preventing physical sitting problems. We even have a chair that conditions and strengthens core muscles while you work and can be used with height adjustable desking.

Feeling good in any work environment increases motivation and performance. People are therefore more balanced and more productive. The length of time spent sitting at work can influence the condition of your body and mind. Stress and health complaints such as muscle and back problems can be reduced or permanently avoided.

KOHL has won numerous Health and Design awards and won the ‘Seal of Health’ for the best all round task chair for an office of 80 staff with varying body sizes and conditions.

DESIGN & INNOVATION

KOHL is ahead in its thinking.

Our R & D department work together with manufacturing to ensure that KOHL is at the forefront of Design and Technology for modern day task seating.

Cutting edge innovation and high performance materials are in the core of every Koehl chair. Subtle yet complex ‘body responsive’ engineering means that your chair is easy to use so that you enjoy a more comfortable Active Sitting experience.

Every task chair comes with a user guide to enable the user to personalise the chair to their individual requirements.

An example is the AUREO® task chair.

Designed for call centres, control centres, dealer desks and areas of staff churn and shifts. With its highly breathable upholstery, the vented climate zones regulate body temperature and perspiration.

KOHL is inspired by Nature and Bionics (Biophilic Design) where the “inventions of nature” are translated into innovative technical solutions.

The concept of KOHL’s climate controlled seating has been scientifically proven by the famous Swiss EMPA "Federal institute for Materials Testing and Research. “ They analysed the heat- and humidity control characteristics of AUREO® compared to classic upholstered chairs. The result confirmed 60% improved thermo-regulation. Another KOHL ‘value’ solution to sitting comfortably
