New for 2022, the Shaal expands Arper’s sofa offerings, marrying exceptional comfort with flexible, modular configurations. A supportive shell cradles Shaal’s deep, plush cushions, elevating the form off the ground.
The Shaal sofa’s distinct design is derived from its balancing of dualities: it is generous yet weightless, it is anchoring yet adaptable, and it is sustainable yet luxurious. The piece brings the hospitable comfort of home anywhere.
The Shaal brings together the heightened comfort of residential furnishings and the adaptability of modular construction. The Shaal sofa system is comprised of six core modules, which can be combined to create angular or linear 2- or 3-seater configurations that meet a variety of different spatial needs for residential, workplace and hospitality settings.
An upholstered, rigid panel creates a high back that cradles Shaal’s supremely plush cushions. Both the panel and cushions are expressive and allow for endless combinations of materials, including leather and bespoke textiles.
The Shaal sofa is conceived with consideration for its entire lifecycle. Removable upholstery can be replaced to extend its life and components and materials can easily be separated for recycling.
