Salone Internazionale del Mobile 17—22 April 2018
From 17-22 April, Arper will participate in the Salone del Mobile in Milan, and present its collections in the exhibition space dedicated to furniture and design companies (Hall 16 – stand C29 D30).
An area of nearly 900 square metres will allow visitors to discover new designs, previews, and a selection of Arper’s iconic products through an immersive experience that fully expresses our
The narration resumes from “Together”, a key word that places relationships at the center of the design system and summarizes Arper’s six values: Balance, Intuition, Family, Color, Lightness, and Play, which will take form in each room through a dialogue between collections and setting.
Arper has constantly been open to suggestions and new ideas, mindful of how much design in every form affects our daily life. This has inspired Arper to carry out a new project for this year’s Salone del Mobile: a series of interviews to distinguished members of the cultural sector and the creative industries, who have been invited to share their personal take on the Arper values (Balance, Intuition, Family, Colour, Lightness, Play). Their interpretations, based on their fields of expertise, have then contributed to identify a common ground amongst multiple perspectives. Among the personalities who took part in the project are Karole Vail, Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice; Deyan Sudjic, Director of The Design Museum, London; Umberto Basso, Managing Director, AKQA Italy; and Dominik Tarabanski, photographer.
Kiik, design by Iwasaki Design Studio, 2018
Islands for gathering. Constellations for activity. Kiik is created for the spaces between entry and departure, between waiting and doing. This modular collection of seating, tables, ottomans, and consoles creates moments for working, gathering, or relaxation in graphic forms with myriad configurations.
Kiik has been created to address the needs of waiting rooms, university lounges, workspaces, meeting areas, and mixed-use spaces. Its modular nature and material finish specification options make it a complementary addition to any context. Kiik’s fundamental structures can be created with seats with and without backrests and tables in triangular, circular, square or rectangular shapes and completed with ottomans and low or raised consoles. Upholstery options in a variety of textures and colors create a unique expression appropriate to the space. Combine diverse configurations together for a dynamic effect, or create patterns with a repeated form. Kiik is ideally suited for any contract use to create bespoke spaces, to pause, to work, to meet.
Paravan, design by Lievore Altherr, 2018
A perimeter to define space. Paravan is sculptural in form and architectural in execution, both articulating and creating space. Like parentheses to enclose a conversation, Paravan creates intimacy in open areas with sound absorbing panels to support focus, concentration, and collaboration. The Paravan collection is a modular language of panels that can be combined to create new expressions to delineate space. From basic quadrants to elegant curvatures, from linear forms to irregular repetitions, Paravan lends pattern, rhythm and color to wide open spaces. Options for straight or rounded corners create aesthetic variety while kaleidoscopic material finishes
ensure the collection can be customized to meet the needs of any space. The Paravan collection is ideally suited for lounge, co-working, or contract use and features an optional coat- hanger or shelf for added functionality. The graceful lines and graphic color combinations match the entire Arper family of collections for a unified integrity of expression in large spaces.
Dizzie, design by Lievore Altherr Molina, 2004
The Dizzie collection expands to include new white Italian marble tabletops. Sleek and sophisticated, the marble tabletops are available in a bar and side table size, with two height options for each version. A sumptuous finish to Dizzie’s organic silhouette for home, hospitality, and contract uses.
Table bases are available in chrome or white-lacquered steel. White MDF or laminate tops are available in large, small, round or square oval. The h 50 version with oval base is available lacquered in four vibrant colors––moka, red, sand and black––in addition to white. The Dizzie marble tabletops are available in bar or side table size, and with two height variations each. The bases for size tables are available in noir sable and white; the bases for bar tables are available in white only.
Arcos, design by Lievore Altherr, 2017
The Arcos collection grows to include a three-seat option. This new couch is expansive in form and minimal in expression. Retaining the same cast aluminum armrests that evoke classical archways and architecture, this new version provides generous length to comfortably accommodate three.
Arcos is available in four seating configurations: chair, lounge chair, two-seat or three-seat sofa. Each is created with a sled base and integrated armrests made of polished or powder-coated aluminum. The shell can be upholstered in a wide selection of material finishes, with matching powder-coated armrests. Because of the four options for seating, the Arcos collection can be combined or repeated to create many different seating environments for hospitality, residential, and contract use.
Cross, design by Metrica, 2014
Cross is now available at a new height, 105 cm, and with two tabletop shapes available: table for creative and collaborative meeting and console for quick and informal moments. Both will be available in two sizes in white Fenix laminate and with optional socket towers.
The table’s substantial length, both minimal and architectural, features a sturdy structure with ample space to create. A central outlet allows computers to plug in accommodating the ever- changing needs of the dynamic, contemporary office. Cross offers a flexible, supportive workspace or meeting space with sleek, consummate style. Myriad finishes and accessories make Cross table adaptable to any environment—for work, for home, for creativity.
Pix, design by Ichiro Iwasaki, 2010
Pix Cubo ottomans in graphic square and rectangular silhouettes evoke the spirit of play. Like building blocks, the soft, modular poufs--available in all the colors of the rainbow--can be arranged in endless compositions for home or contract. It’s comfort with a light touch. Available in square or rectangular silhouettes, Pix Cubo is modular and generous, and blends beautifully with the Pix and Kiik collections to offer even more versatility.
Duna 02, design by Lievore Altherr Molina, 2014
Duna’s timeless silhouette is like a soft, enveloping flower—evoking the feeling of being held by a blossom. To complement Duna’s source of inspiration, Duna has been reimagined in sustainably-made shell options made in a 100% recycled post-industrial material. Inspired by nature, in the service of nature.
The eco-friendly version is compatible with 4 leg base, in powder-coated steel or wood, and is available in anthracite color.
