Aava Collection Design by Studio Antti Kotilainen, 2013
Aava, born from Arper first collaboration with Finnish designer Antti Kotilainen, transforms an essential and efficient form to evocative through the texture and warmth of wood. Soft curves yield a contemporary silhouette that is both striking yet sensitive, an adaptive form that can speak or assimilate to any environment.
Made for both residential and contract use, Aava’s wooden shell and base are made of precompound wood skillfully milled in variable thickness and sheathed in veneer to accentuate its sinuous silhouette, in a diverse range of materials, colors and finishes. Shell is available in birch painted black, birch painted white, natural birch, natural oak color, natural walnut color and beechwood. Bases include wooden legs, sled or chrome 4-legs: all with or without armrests. A stool version of Aava is also available in two heights (65 and 75 cm).
Ply Collection Design by Lievore Altherr Molina, 2013
Triangular in form and modular in nature, Ply is a system of low tables and stools designed by the studio Lievore Altherr Molina rendered in fluid lines of wood. Engineered to create a continuous line from top through legs, its reduced silhouette and warm material complement its dynamic form. Alone or in groups, Ply’s playful geometry of surfaces is like the game of Tangram, shape and color work together to create open compositions. Tables are available in different table top variations, height (36 cm and 44 cm) in oak, black and red. Stools are available in three heights (44, 64 and 76 cm) for dining and bar applications in two colors: natural oak and black.
