Concept

As much a part of Arper’s identity as it is a testament to enduring design, Catifa 53 is the piecethat started it all. Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, Catifa 53’s graceful curves and sleek,sensuous silhouette are achieved through an economy of materials––and an exclusive manufacturing process pioneered by Arper to synthesize concept, form, and production.

Catifa’s iconic shape is ubiquitous in use. Comfortable in both residential and contract environments, the collection has been available in an array of colors, materials and constructions. New for 2017, Catifa Up offers a higher backrest than Catifa 53, with the additionof optional armrests in a new design and plush padding to lend stately comfort and support to boardrooms, workplaces, home offices, and conference rooms. A new range of upholstery options delivers visual intrigue to an indelible design. With Catifa Up, elegance and comfort team up to get the job done.
