AZ Awards Peoples Choice: Kata by Altherr Désile Park for Arper

What happens when traditional craftsmanship meets modern, sustainable manufacturing processes? This elegant lounge chair — which uses a variety of eco-friendly materials, from its wooden frame to its glue-free recyclable packaging — is a prime example. Designed to be both lightweight and low-impact, and inspired by traditional wood and woven straw chairs, Kata is made from either oak or black locust hardwoods, both FSC-certified. The seat cover is woven from yarn spun from post-consumer plastic, 3D-knitted and formed to fit the frame, further reducing waste during production.
