Contrasts, like those between the temperatures of day and night in the desert; like those in the design of the Arp collection, with an appearance that is both strong and light. Its solid structure and voluminous textile elements are a sought-after contrast to the lightness of its backrests, inspired by the strings of a harp. A design that must be viewed from all angles.
“The general concept of ARP lies in the proliferation of the use of metal in England in the 19th century, when the Crystal Palace positioned itself as the maximum exponent of the structural and compositional possibilities of this material. This gives rise to the characteristic motif of the collection on all its backs, a geometric succession built on vertical aluminum lines that reminds us of the strings of a harp.”
