Designed by Altherr Désile Park in 2021 for Arper, Kata is a lounge armchair with solid black locust frame with teak stained finish. Shell with steel frame and 3D Knit fabric with striped pattern made with recycled polyester fibre yarns and available in 3 colours. Suitable for outdoor use.
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.
