Lievore Altherr Molina was founded by Alberto Lievore, Jeannette Altherr and Manel Molina in 1991. Their humanist design approach is informed by the fundamental desire for pure, beautiful forms derived from the constraints of function, technology and context. Distinguished by a multi-disciplinary method that engages furniture, interior, product and package design, their work has been globally exhibited and acknowledged. They are the recipients of the prestigious National Design Award (1999) in Spain where they practice and teach extensively. Lievore Altherr Molina have created some of our most influential and beloved collections, such as Catifa, Duna and Leaf.
At Arper, they create chairs, tables, and furnishings for community, work and home.
They're motivated by relationships: between products and spaces, spaces and people, people and their networks. They frame everything—their soft, essential design sensibility, their direct and personalized service, organizational and corporate policies, their global brand identity—in terms of human values.
A FAMILIAR STORY — They are a fast-growing company founded in 1989—a family business guided by an integrative, human-centered approach. They have grown from a furniture manufacturing business to an international design presence, dramatically increasing their turnover and adding hundreds of new employees to the Arper family.
DESIGN APPROACH — Every part of the product development process—from design to production to long-term impact—is carefully considered, bringing function, aesthetic, detail together in elegant resolution.
A UNIQUE SENSIBILITY — Arper's design ethos is based on the versatility of essential forms. Over time, their approach has evolved around six core concepts: Balance, Family, Intuition, Light, Color, Play.
