Concept

Catifa 53 is the original: the inspiration that extends to Arper itself. The graceful curved seat and sleek profile are the ultimate synthesis: conceptual purity is achieved through the reduction of the superfluous without loss of sensuality. Utilizing a wide range of finishes, bases and accessories, this almost-universal form may be customized for diverse applications and contexts without altering its essential character. Made for both residential and contract use, indoors and out, the Catifa 53 shell and base are fabricated in a diverse range of materials, colors and finishes. The shell is constructed in double-curved plywood, mono- or patented bi-color polypropylene - an exclusive process pioneered by Arper- covered in leather, faux-leather, fabric or finished with upholstered pads. The base comes in chrome-finish steel, satin-finish stainless steel, aluminum, powder-coated aluminum or wood and is available in the following configurations: sled, four-legs, cantilevered, trestle and five-ways. The sled and four-leg bases are stackable to allow for large-scale use and storage. Catifa 53 is also available as a bench. The Catifa 53 collection is GreenGuard certified.
