It used to be that every neighborhood in Germany had what was called a Tante Emma Laden, or mom-and-pop shop. Now a new market in Cologne with the clever name TEMMA is bringing back local, organic offerings and a gemütlich ambience in an updated form.
TEMMA’s designers chose Arper’s Catifa 53 chairs to populate the eco-friendly market's open dining space which features a comfortable place to sit for coffee, wine or a nibble.
Says Managing Director of TEMMA, Christiane Speck, “In searching for chairs for TEMMA, we wanted more than versatility, light weight and aesthetic appeal. We were also looking for a model of sustainability. Arper's Catifa Collection, which has received many awards for its low environmental impact, embodies these criteria perfectly. That the chairs also convenient and robust for everyday use sealed our decision. Now we help our customers make sustainable choices everyday simply by sitting down to relax and enjoy the environment”.
