Adell, timeless design and sustainability for the new Arper chair


Smooth like a pebble, soft as mounded moss.

Adell is the name of the new chair designed by Lievore + Altherr Désile Park for Arper and characterised by low rounded curves, whether in use indoors or out.

With a shell made from 80% recycled polypropylene, the calming form has been designed with sustainability at its foundation; plush yet supportive, substantial yet lightweight, Adell’s gentle slopes offer a welcoming and generous place of rest.

The link between the polypropylene shell and nature is strong, thanks to its organic shape, the use of recycled and recyclable material and the special texture on the surface: its concentric pattern draws inspiration from tree rings and shell stripes and is present on the entire external and internal surface, made of over 500 hand-designed lines characterised by an aleatory and irregular progression.

Adell’s shell is made from post-industrial recycled plastic and the chair can be disassembled for responsible disposal: all materials used can be recycled or upcycled and incorporated into the life cycle of other products, the paints used incorporate environmental protections, it is made without glue to eliminate emissions and ensure all component parts can be recycled or repurposed; finally, Adell wood base version is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®.

In addition, Adell has been created with adaptability in mind: designed for use in spaces of repose, Adell can be customized to suit myriad contexts, from lounge areas to waiting rooms, educational common areas, hospitality spaces or residential settings.

To accommodate a variety of contexts, Adell is available in a recycled textured plastic finish only, fully upholstered, in plastic with upholstered seat cushion, or in plastic with a removable cushion or full cover, for indoor and outdoor use; base options include metal or wooden leg configurations or sled base in metal.

The result is a combination of timeless design and sustainability to reduce the amount of waste in our environment.
