Good design is a synthesis of technique, cost, material, function, use, taste and sustainability. That concentration of meanings, associations and possibilities must reside in simple, singular forms. Arper believes the best objects carry a rich, intellectual density in a shape that seems natural and effortless. An object that feels spontaneous while clearly the result of rigour and precision. Creating new forms that are physically and stylistically resilient is hard work, but this is the work that they embrace. Established in 1989 in Treviso and born out of an artisanal leather-working business, Arper has continued to invest in technological innovation and is well-placed in the international market.
