The new Trestle table is an addition to the Local Wood collection by Arco, which will be previewed for the first time at imm 2017 fair. Designed by Jorre van Ast, the design recasts the functional look of the trestle to create a generously proportioned table that will complement any living space.
The solid, rectangular table top creates a striking contrast to the dynamic supports. It almost seems to float on the two aluminium trestles, although it actually sits securely on threaded pins.
The two-part table top is supported at each end by a three-legged aluminium trestle, the height of which can be adjusted from 71 to 78 cm. This means that the table can be easily transported, set up and adapted to the intended purpose. The versatile Trestle comes in four sizes and looks good in a wide range of living spaces.
Jorre van Ast, designer and Creative Director at Arco, explains, “This table is designed to bring the functionality of the Trestle into the living area.”
Increasingly, living spaces have to serve a lot of different functions. Eating, working, meeting and celebrating all take place at one and the same table, which as a result becomes a multi-purpose item of furniture. Thanks to its mobility and minimalistic design, Trestle serves a wide range of functions.
