At the Salone del Mobile 2017 Arper explores the contemporary world from a Together perspective: we are moving in an essentially collective world, where getting together applies to every moment of daily life thus creating new needs, demanding spaces to suit new situations, in the pursuit of peace and quiet, harmony and beauty, in the face of forward motion. Arper approaches Together through spaces, collections and communication, in two complementary exhibition areas, at Salone del Mobile and at Workplace 3.0/Salone Ufficio.
Salone Internazionale del Mobile
4—9 April 2017
Milan Fairgrounds, Rho
Pavilion 16 Stand C29–D30
Workplace 3.0/Salone ufficio
Pavilion 22 Stand D20–D24
The project of booths welcomes a new partner in Arper's creative team: Maio, an architecture firm with headquarters in Barcelona specialized in architectural design, founded by Maria Charneco, Alfredo Lérida, Guillermo López and Anna Puigjaner. Maio developed the Arper booths projects, in collaboration with the designer Jeannette Altherr and the stylist Studio Bakker.
The project for the main booth turns the visit into an experiential journey: spaces conceived to represent the blurring boundaries of contemporary everyday life, at home, at work, within the urban landscape. Rooms are modulated through the space, in order to tell the story of the furniture. Sets and finishes change to affect the character of each room. The spaces become domestic while adapted to the space they fit. The Workplace 3.0 booth uses a different language both in terms of architecture and materials: a structure made of translucent material encloses the space, creating an alternation of shadows and transparencies. The collections will be displayed along the booth perimeter and in the central area, within settings that are designed to represent the evolution of culture in nowadays space.
Tuesday – Sunday 09.30 am – 6.30 pm. Trade only.
Open to the general public only on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April
Together is our new normal. It is at the center of everything we do. In an essentially collective world, we need spaces that adapt seamlessly: for peace and quiet, for harmony, for beauty in the face of forward motion.
