Design Lievore Altherr Molina, 2017
As much a part of Arper’s identity as it is a testament to enduring design, Catifa 53 is the piece that started it all. Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, Catifa 53’s graceful curves and sleek, sensuous silhouette are achieved through an economy of materials––and an exclusive manufacturing process pioneered by Arper to synthesize concept, form, and production.
Catifa Up, taking after Catifa 53, features a higher backrest and newly designed optional armrests. Catifa Up is available with trestle base and 5-way base, both available with castors or glides versions; it can be customized with all the upholstery finishes listed in the catalogue. Catifa Up Soft features a double cushion, a soft upholstery that can improve the seating comfort in meeting and conference rooms, offices, and residential study rooms.
