Catifa 53 is a wide collection of diverse and versatile chairs with distinctively sensual plain surfaces and chaste lines. Due to this elegant simplicity the Catifa 53 collection is equally well suited to residential and public use. It is the result of the high-tech innovative system used to make the shell by high-pressure polypropylene injection. Both the one- and two-tone versions are produced by the exclusive ColorBi system, a trademark patented and registered by Arper. Catifa 53’s shell is mounted on a chrome metal, aluminium, or stainless steel structure. In addition to the single-colour or two-tone plastic versions, Catifa 53 is also available covered in fabric, hide and full-grain leather.
