Premiering at the 2012 Salone de Mobile in Milan, Arper is pleased to introduce Brief No. 2. Titled "Living Systems" this Brief takes a more in-depth look at Arper and its furniture as a living system of bases, shells, materials, color and contexts.
The Brief pairs Arper furniture alongside diverse images of living systems in ecology, architecture, and urbanism as a form of inspiration, giving an associative and expansive eye into the nature of Arper's design process.
Features include new photography by Scheltens and Abbenes, a photo essay by Mark Mahaney on Arper's factory in Treviso, a piece about Arper's approach of "Soft Technology" and interviews with Lievore Altherr Molina and James Irvine about their 2012 additions to the Arper family.
