The circular approach has long characterized the production of Arper that has been using Life Cycle Assessment since 2007 to assess the ecological impact of some collections.
This attitude is the basis of the Mixu series, one of the brand’s latest creations, which was made using recycled materials and can be completely disassembled for correct disposal, making this dynamic collection a materially conscious system throughout its life cycle.
These are furnishing objects born from the collaboration with the Gensler studio and designed with the aim of facilitating recycling and responsible recovery. In fact, the chairs and stools that are part of Mixu can be easily disassembled. This approach obviously also favors the extreme versatility of a collection that is ideal for hospitality or contract use, thanks to virtually unlimited customization possibilities.
Working a lot on the design of the junction points, the American architecture and design firm has created a three-part system of seat, backrest, and base which can be personalized with myriad color and texture combinations depending on context of use. Seat options are available in post-industrial recycled plastic, FSC certified wood, fabric, or leather finishes. Seats can be combined with backrest options in a plastic, fabric, or leather and four-leg bases in either metal or FSC certified wood.
