Design by Altherr Désile Park, 2021
Lightweight in form and environmental footprint, Kata is designed with circular sustainability at its core.
Arper’s first solid wood lounge chair, Kata takes inspiration from artisan-made wood and woven straw chairs and reimagines the near universal typology using contemporary, sustainable solutions in an expression that’s both graphic and warm.
Kata finds form in juxtaposition—an evocative gesture in the movement between material presence and minimal silhouette, softness and strength, tradition and technology.
The Kata lounge chair is a union of traditional craftsmanship and soft technology.
An oak and black locust FSC certified wooden frame supports a tailor-made 3D knit textile.
The knit cover is created from recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic that is converted into durable and lightweight fibers.
The knit technology is formed to fit the frame, avoiding leftover material waste found in traditional manufacturing.
The unified seat and back structure is available in a graphic-patterned 3D knit with internal micro-padding in natural tones of linen, wheat, or charcoal, or a lightweight 3D knit in parallel striped pattern in a choice of colors: water, wheat, or charcoal – also suitable for outdoor use.
Additional loose seat and back cushions finishes can be customized in both Arper's complete fabric catalogue and in graphic-patterned 3D Knit.
Kata by Arper USA features 5 photos and has BIM / CAD 3D models.
This Seating Lounge Chair is available in commercial grade.
