The Kiik, Cila and Pix Cubo collections come from the minds of various inspired designers, unified under the Arper brand. As offices grow, and office culture changes, different configurations and designs of office furniture must grow too.

Islands for gathering, constellations for activity – Kiik is a highly configurable modular office furniture collection of seating solutions, tables and consoles designed by Iwasaki Design Studio.

Kiik includes a two, three or four seat module, either with or without a backrest. The range was designed following Iwasaki’s observations of the way people communicate and occupy space. Suitable for alone or group use, the modular system allows a range of positions within a single unified aesthetic. Kiik is ideal for public spaces, education facilities and lobby areas in commercial fit-outs.

In the design of the Cila chair collection, Lievore Altherr drew inspiration from the soft, fluid curves and smooth lines of layered cloth. The result is a strong, simple chair collection whose backrest envelops the user, ideal for education, workplace or hospitality environments.

Cila’s distinctive shell is available in a contemporary palette of five colours with optional seat cushion, or full upholstery. The collection’s versatile base options include sled, four-way castor or four-leg in mild steel or timber.

Clean lines define the soft, generous volumes of Pix, a family of ottomans that marries Arper style with the creativity of the Iwasaki Design Studio. The Pix Cubo is an extension of the existing Pix ottoman collection, showcasing a more linear design in the form of square and rectangular silhouettes. The ottomans can be upholstered in fabric or leather and offer the perfect office furniture solution for waiting and relaxation areas.

The Pix Cubo silhouettes have been designed to evoke the spirit of play – like building blocks. Soft and modular, the pouffes can be arranged in endless compositions for the office or even the home.

The new Arper collections are available in Australia and Singapore exclusively from Stylecraft.
