The base comes in chrome-finish steel, satin-finish stainless steel, aluminum or powder-coated aluminum, and is available in the following base configurations: sled, four-legs in tube or wood, cantilevered, aluminum trestle and five-ways. The sled and four-leg bases are stackable to allow for large-scale use and storage. Catifa 53 is also available as a bench and in a lounge version.

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 Arper most influential and beloved collections, such as Catifa, Duna and Leaf.
