Manufacturer Arper

(2004)
Catifa 46 Collection
Catifa 46 is the little sister of Catifa 53. Same sleek profile with a crisp, casual efficiency that is designed for contract use and spaces that require a slightly smaller scale. Extremely flexible, Catifa 46 extends the palette of finishes, bases and accessories for customization to accommodate an almost limitless array of contract applications without altering its essential character. Made for both residential and contract use, indoors and out, the Catifa 46 shell and base are fabricated in a diverse range of materials, colors and finishes. The shell is constructed in double-curved plywood, mono- or bi-color polypropylene (an exclusive process pioneered by Arper), covered in leather or fabric or finished with upholstered pads. The base comes in chrome-finish steel, satin-finish stainless steel, aluminum or powder-coated aluminum, and is available in the following base configurations: sled, four-legs in tube, aluminum trestle and five-star. The sled and four-leg bases are stackable to allow for large-scale use and storage. A table accessory is available for campus or auditorium use. Catifa 46 is also available as a stool. Since 2013 Catifa 46 and 53 can be further customized with fabric covers that slide on and zip up to enliven and adapt polypropelene shells. Available in a curated selection of Kvadrat fabrics, the covers incorporate contrasting top-stitch patterns to create focus and interest as well as comfort and warmth.
