Design by Lievore Altherr, 2017
A simple gesture, a sensuous feel. The fluid form of Cila was inspired by the image of layers of cloth enveloping the body. Its silhouette of smooth lines retains a graphic character from its distinctive curve –– the most essential symbol of shelter. Like being protected, like being held.
The polypropylene shell, both in its chair and its armchair with armrests (for extra comfort and functionality) versions, can be combined with all the existing bases of the Cila collection (steel 4-leg base, steel sled base, wooden 4-leg base, aluminum trestle base with or without castors) in ever-changing configurations. Available in five color finishes and with optional upholstery, it can be easily combined with the other Arper collections. An optional seat cushion in a range of colors lends greater plushness to the supportive form.
