Do More Chair Tan-Sad Ahrend A
“Do More” Chair or Stool from Tan-Sad via Ahrend, A.
Completely original and fully functional!
Ahrend was (is) one of the major office furniture manufacturers in the Netherlands and supplemented their offerings by importing innovative seating from Tan-Sad, based in Birmingham England.
Tan-Sad, realising that employers didn’t care about their workers health, emphasised in their advertising that their products enabled workers to work longer and produce more, i.e. “DO MORE”, that a little back support goes a long way. “Scientific fatigue-reducing chair” was one of their slogans.
