Arper is a company that presents its new forms with few words but abundant shapes: “Good design is a synthesis of technique, cost, material, function, use, taste and sustainability. That concentration of meanings, associations and possibilities must reside in simple, singular forms,” Arper states.

To assure this outcome, several notable designers are engaged, including Lievore Altherr, Jean-Marie Massaud, Simon Pengelly, Rodolfo Dordoni, Ichiro Iwasaki, and James Irvine, all of whose works may be explored at Arkitektura’s San Francisco showroom.

“All around us, change is the continuous constant,” observes Andrew Fisher, Arkitektura owner. “Arper’s designs provide a considered response to new forces in technology, culture and your personal life. Arkitektura and Arper share a common bond around their concept that ‘the best objects carry a rich, intellectual density in a shape that seems natural and effortless.’”

Arper’s awards for the best modern furniture speak for themselves. In the space of just the past three years: Arper’s Nuur table by Simon Pengelly has been awarded with the Polish award Dobry Wzor 2012 (Good Design) for the category “Pracy” (Working environment”) by the Institute of Industrial Design in Warsaw. TEAM, ASTON Office Syncro and BABAR was awarded with the label “Interior Innovation Award – Winner 2011, Germany,” Also awarded: Loop, Best of The Best nomination for “Best System” category, Catifa 53, Best of The Best nomination for “Classic Innovation” category and Nuur Best of The Best nomination for “Best Detail” category, 2010, Germany.

Hello everyone, 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and well!

In accordance to the SF Bay Area "Shelter in Place" mandate we are doing our part to help stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Please know that we here at Arkitektura San Francisco have decided to close both our showrooms effective Tuesday, March 17th until further notice. 

During this time, we will be working remotely and are here to support you. 
In preparation we have available visual presentations of our showroom, enabling you to virtually see what is on our showroom floor currently. We can guide you through product selections, with finishes, fabric and leather options. We will in turn get samples to you as soon as they are available to us.

Most of our vendors have confirmed that in the interest of their team's safety, they are also closing during this time. Therefore, please note, that we are experiencing delays in both production and shipping. We are working closely with all of our partners and we will make sure to update you all as soon as any new information is provided to us. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us or to our operations team if you have any questions. We are here to help. 

From all of us at Arkitektura, we hope to hear and chat with you very soon!
