Concentration Corner

The Concentration Couch, asset to the Ahrend Acoustics & Privacy portfolio, was designed by Basten Leijh. Thanks to its sound-absorbing material the Concentration Couch isolates its workspace but at the same time quetens the working environment as a whole.

In short the concentration corner is the perfect solution for flexible working environments. The unit is built op out of several elements, which can be linked and seperated from eachother. This results in more flexibility and offers a chance to create new settings like a solo desk, conference setting or concentration couch. The Concentration Couch is available in both plain- and patterned fabrics.

The Ahrend Concentration Couch is both creative and flexible. Its modular design makes for several different possible configurations. It comes in a variety of sizes and is available in an extensive range of colours and upholstery.

  • Sound-absorbing for the surrounding area and isolated from within
  • Opportunity to create new settings over and over again
