Product description

Jorre van Ast's first design for the Arco collection is a lightweight portable table. This slim and handy piece of furniture is absolutely ideal for young cosmopolitans with a nomadic lifestyle. While most other tables are usually constructed with the aid

of metal parts, this piece of furniture is made entirely and exclusively from wood. Different kinds wood, each with their own specific properties and qualities, are crafted together to create the perfect lightweight rigidity. The table top is constructed

as a threedimensional sandwich with a core made from honeycomb, balsawood and thin poplar wood sheet material. The legs are made of solid ash. The ingenuity of the design is concealed beneath the table top where it is virtually invisible. The table top i

s 68mm thick in the centre yet tapers to just 10mm at the sides. So the table is sufficiently stable yet looks fabulously slim. The whole table top is finished with oak veneer, which also covers the tapered underside of the table. The thickness of the tab

le top contains space for wooden screw threads, into which the legs are screwed. A beautiful example of traditional joinery craftsmanship. The legs are octagonal in shape to give them sufficient grip. This serves as both a functional element and a decorat

ive element.
