Lightweight in form and environmental footprint, Kata is designed with circular sustainability at its core. Arper's first solid wood lounge chair, Kata takes inspiration from artisan-made wood and woven straw chairs and reimagines the near universal typology using contemporary, sustainable solutions in an expression that's both graphic and warm. Kata finds form in juxtaposition — an evocative gesture in the movement between material presence and minimal silhouette, softness and strength, tradition and technology.

Kata is created using a strong and durable polyester fiber made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Because the recycling process transforms the fiber on a molecular level, there is no difference between recycled polyester and virgin polyester: it looks and behaves like wool, but with excellent stretch and stain, water, light and weather resistance.
