CATIFA 53 | Beam seating By arper
Two, three or four seats bench. Each seating position can be fitted with either a seat or a table top, offering solutions to meet all requirements. The metal frame is white painted and the shells are available in polypropylene, polypropylene covered with hard leather or upholstered in fabric, leather or faux leather.
Catifa 53 is the original: the inspiration that extends to Arper itself. The graceful curved seat and sleek profile are the ultimate synthesis: conceptual purity is achieved through the reduction of the superfluous without loss of sensuality. Utilizing a wide range of finishes, bases and accessories, this almost–universal form may be customized for diverse applications and contexts without altering its essential character.
Made for both residential and contract use, indoors and out, the Catifa 53 shell and base are fabricated in a diverse range of materials, colors and finishes. The shell is constructed in double-curved plywood, mono- or patented bi-color polypropylene (an exclusive process pioneered by Arper, available in wide color variation in Catifa 53), covered in leather, faux-leather, 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 or wood, cantilevered, aluminum trestle and five-star. The sled and four-leg bases are stackable to allow for large-scale use and storage. Catifa 53 is also available as a bench.
