CULT&MUST - Catifa 46 by Arper one chair a thousand ideas

Posted by: Fulvia Ramogida

Catifa: a word that means “carpet” in Catalan and sounds as the name of an Arabian Nights princess. Catifa is the iconic arper chair designed by studio Lievore Altherr Molina in 7 collections. The inspiration comes from Aladdin’s flying carpet. A magic object with a simple design, a symbol of freedom with a precise shape. Catifa 46 is a seat conceived for many purposes: to stop and rest, focus your thoughts, chat, work comfortably and airily.

It’s easy to encounter this beautiful chair as a piece of furniture in an office, a showroom or a public space, the fields where arper is a leading brand, but Catifa 46 responds to many more wishes. The stool version is perfect for a cosy and contemporary kitchen, the stackable one is the ideal piece to set up a parterre rapidly and sleekly.  The upholstered swivel version is the best nest for comfortable home working. Without ever altering the original character of the Catifa family, version 46 has a vibrant essence: the combinations of colours, finishes  and materials are countless. Seating on a Catifa 46 and looking at it makes us think to a world of playfulness an essential element for any high-quality design piece as the ones signed by arper where relationships, rules, fantasy meet together to create timeless objects.
