Update 2021


New for 2021, Kinesit Met is a sophisticated evolution of the Kinesit office chair, now available in a refreshed palette. Created as Arper’s first regulatory-compliant office chair, Kinesit Met is available with metallic finished armrests and in new, rich and nuanced materials, colors, and textures. Inspired by the contemporary moment and the evolution in our workplaces and spaces, Kinesit Met is designed forhow (and where) we work today – softer, adaptable, and from anywhere. This new palette selection adds refinement and style to imbedded soft technology, marrying performance and style in a sleek silhouette.



“Introducing Kinesit, Arper’s first office chair that continues the company’s line of research into Soft Tech. Looking at technology from a holistic perspective: what is the object for? As well as: who is the object for? Representing the search for Technology that fuses seamlessly with the object so that all we are left with is the experience. Soft Tech leads to an end result , it’s not the end result. Kinesit is an office chair that simply looks like a chair, without any visible mechanism, yet it is one hundred percent compliant with all regulatory requirements. Light and minimalist in its design, the chair seat and back are fully adjustable allowing it to conform to individual body types for optimal comfort, even while carrying out more time consuming projects.”
