Arper — Exercises in the EssentialArrowClose

What is essential? This is the question that Arper poses each time they design and produce a piece of furniture, and each time they communicate with the world. Arper commissioned Wax Studios to investigate this question for their Brief, a publication that connects Arper products and thinking with the world at large.

 

Wax art directed, wrote and designed the publication “Exercises in the Essential”, which explores a series of relationships between furniture and the human body. While furniture, at its core, must define itself in relationship to basic human needs, it is the qualities of this relationship that make Arpers furniture meaningful.
