The shape of the base is inspired by the techno-structures often used in modern buildings, while the material used is a "light" cement that incorporates colour and a special fibrous material, moulded in a single block and coloured en masse. The result is a strong structure, characterised by a low specific weight, which makes it possible to create complex shapes.
The Arc table combines structural characteristics of strength and elasticity with innovative concepts such as complete recyclability and the low environmental impact of the production cycle. The outdoor proposal, which is configured in a single dimension, is available in the colour anthracite in all its components, resulting in a sculptural table with a mono-material and monochrome essence.
Foster + Partners is one of the most innovative architectural and integrated design studios in the world. Since its founding in 1967, the studio promoted a sustainable approach to architecture, with a wide variety of projects including urban planning, public infrastructure, airports, civic and cultural buildings, offices and workplaces, private houses and product design. Its architects and engineers combine their knowledge to develop integrated solutions for sustainable design by working together creatively from the project’s beginning. Foster + Partners and Molteni&C deal with each project eclectically through the use of innovative materials and technologies such as the Arc table with its lightweight concrete base, or the Teso coffee table where the production technique was totally reinvented.complete biography
