Arper unveils its Meeting Hub in Belgium


Beernem Belgium

The Italian furniture company Arper debuts its first Meeting Hub in Belgium, located in an

ancient villa in the peaceful countryside near Bruges (Flanders). The 120 m2 space in

Beernem gives a lively impression of the versatile Arper collection of designer chairs,

sofas and tables. Architects, interior designers and design enthusiasts are invited to

meet, get inspired and develop their projects in the serene setting of the Meeting Hub.

The Arper space is also ideal for training sessions, as the quiet surroundings boost

concentration levels.

Arper manufactures and distributes designer chairs, sofas and tables for contract, home and

work sectors worldwide. The company is the outcome of an entrepreneurial project that began

in 1989 as the evolution of a small leather manufacturing company founded in the 1980s by the

Feltrin family. Today Arper is an international company with 11 showrooms in major design

capitals worldwide. Each showroom plays a strategic role in the development of each local

market. Four showrooms house the offices of the Group’s subsidiaries: New York, Dubai,

London and Tokyo. Currently, two branches exist: Arper Sweden and Arper Singapore. The

showrooms in Milan, Cologne, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Oslo, Chicago are brand ambassador

exhibition spaces and places for the local design communities to meet and discuss. Additionally,

Arper has an in-house showroom at its Headquarters in Treviso.

Within this growth process, the opening of the Arper Meeting Hub in Belgium is an important

step forward for Arper, as it foresees the possibility to build new long lasting collaborations

and further develop existing relationships with the local design community in Belgium. The

Meeting Hub will primary be a place for designers to enhance their creativity and to co-create.

To that end, the new Meeting Hub will be hosting gatherings, meetings and trainings. “We are

pleased to inaugurate this beautiful space – says Claudio Feltrin, Arper President and CEO –

Belgium is representing a relevant opportunity for Arper, and the meeting hub is the perfect

space for architects and designers to meet, share ideas and create”.

The Meeting Hub in Beernem is dedicated to the company’s furnishing solutions that go beyond

function alone and combine simplicity, flexibility and beauty. The style of the collections reflects

an essential and contemporary elegance that express timeless values. Arper will showcase its

collection of products including chairs – task, lounge and contract models –, sofas and tables.

Among them the company’s successful Catifa collections, Parentesit acoustic wall mounted and

freestanding panels and the Kinesit task chair, all designed by Lievore Altherr Molina. Other representative collections that shaped Arper’s identity are the Steeve sofa by Jean-Marie

Massaud, Pix ottomans and tables by the Japanese designer Ichiro Iwasaki, Nuur table by

Simon Pengelly and Juno chair by James Irvine.
