Catifa Carta by Arper


Catifa 53, designed in 2001 and the first Arper product to achieve environmental certification, enters the era of material innovation. Indeed, Catifa Carta's shell is made of Papershell, a material derived from wood waste that provides strength and comfort to Catifa's iconic, curvy silhouette. Papershell 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, vegetable charcoal that can retain the CO2 sequestered during earlier life stages. Catifa Carta is available in two colors and three base options. The shell in coffee and graphite colors. The base, on the other hand, is offered in versions: four steel legs in black, steel sled in black and rust, and black aluminum trestle with and without castors. Removable cushions and covers add color and comfort. To reduce environmental impact and enable a longer life cycle, Catifa Carta is completely disassemblable.
