Arper invests in €2m 15,000sqft design lab
Arper has invested in a major addition at its head office: a 15,064sqft design lab.
The lab will be in addition to its existing technical offices and test laboratory, increasing the space to 18,292sqft, and represents an investment of just over €2m.
The design lab will be a multifunctional space, where the most crucial phases of the development of product collections will be curated. Definition, design, development and market launch of the new collections will be managed in-house, thanks to the design lab, which will allow the company to optimise and speed up development.

‘Sustainability is a strategic goal. Ambitious visions and actions, and organisational and cultural changes are the fundamental conditions for the evolution of a company that is committed to adopt and make sustainable processes, production and collections. Although the year has been difficult for the entire sector, Arper, thanks to its management policy that has always been careful and conscientious, is today financially healthy and capable of giving positive signals, even in unfavorable contexts. For this reason, the company has decided to invest in the expansion of the research and development department, which will enhance Arper's development abilities and help us become even more competitive,’ says Claudio Feltrin, Arper ceo.
