Design by Lievore Altherr Molina, 2001 – Collection Extension, 2024

Catifa 53, designed in 2001 and Arper’s first product with an environmental product declaration, enters a new era through a partnership in material innovation. Catifa Carta features a re-engineered shell made of PaperShell, a revolutionary new material made of composite wood by-product, which provides the strength and comfort essential to Catifa’s now iconic, bi-curved silhouette. A first of its kind innovation, PaperShell dramatically reduces Catifa Carta’s impact on the environment by doing what trees do: sequestering carbon dioxide. At the end of its life cycle, the material can be reduced to biochar, successfully retaining the CO2 sequestered during the previous life phases. The new Catifa Carta is as transformative in style and beauty as the original, now setting a new standard for sustainable design.
With a shell composed of bi-curved, paper-derived new material, Catifa Carta offers a new vision with renewed sustainability ambitions. The PaperShell material is the result of advanced scientific research, innovating a process that tackles the climate challenges practically – and Arper is the first manufacturer in the design industry to apply it to a product. The shell of Catifa Carta is available in a coffee color and the base in three options: steel base 4 legs in black, steel sled base in black and rust, black aluminum trestle base with and without wheels. Cushions and removable cover options are available to add color and extra comfort. To further reduce its environmental impact and allow for a longer life cycle, Catifa Carta is fully disassemblable. We are also working to define the most efficient take back solutions to ensure responsible end of life.
