The series was born in 2015 from an idea with classic trestles, which have played an important role in Design House Stockholm’s development of the Arco tables. It started with a desk, which then inspired a dining table, leading to these new additions to the family. The Arco series is now complete with practical tables sporting high or low trestle legs. The idea is simple and functional, building on Chuck Mack’s development of traditional carpenters trestles used by carpenters when adjusting the height of their working tables.
The tables are fitted with exceptional legs that can bear heavy weights in the same way as carpenter trestles. Just like their predecessors, the new models are easy to place and serve as neat little tables for your displays, plants, as a desk, or whatever you choose to use them for.
