Adell by Lievore + Altherr Désile Park for Arper
With a shell made from 80% post-industrial recycled polypropylene, the calming form has been designed with sustainability at its foundation, putting both body and mind at ease. Plush yet supportive, substantial yet lightweight, Adell’s gentle slopes offer a welcoming and generous place of rest.
The link between the polypropylene shell and nature is strong. This is due not only to its organic shape and the use of recycled and recyclable material but also to the special texture on the surface. Its concentric pattern draws inspiration from tree rings and shell stripes and is present on the entire external and internal surface. It is made of over 500 hand-designed lines characterised by an aleatory and irregular progression. The result is a shell with a unique material appearance.
Adell can be disassembled for responsible disposal. All materials used can be recycled or upcycled and incorporated into the life cycle of other products, thereby reducing overall waste. The paints used incorporate environmental protections. Adell is made without glue to eliminate emissions and ensure all component parts can be recycled or repurposed. Adell wood base version is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®.
Adell has been created with adaptability in mind. Designed for use in spaces of repose, Adell can be customized to suit myriad contexts, from lounge areas to waiting rooms, educational common areas, hospitality spaces or residential settings. To accommodate a variety of contexts, Adell is available in a recycled textured plastic finish only, fully upholstered, in plastic with upholstered seat cushion, or in plastic with a removable cushion or full cover, for indoor and outdoor use. Base options include metal or wooden leg configurations or sled base in metal.
These configuration options and timeless design extend the use cases of Adell, creating an enduring product with a long lifespan to reduce the amount of waste in our environment.
