We are Arco, we make tables
A table is a place. The place where we spend almost the entire day - alone, as a couple or with a large group. A dynamic place that we use in ever-changing ways: to talk, eat, read, work or relax. A place that can be formal, or just shapes itself organically. All these moments and places are increasingly merging into one another. With all the digital developments that are taking place, people are increasingly working from home. At the same time, the traditional office is becoming more and more domestic. It needs to be a place where people can achieve optimum productivity and which offers room for relaxation. We make tables - and complementary products - for all these moments and places. And we’ve been doing it for over 115 years.
Living in the workplace
The workplace is also changing. In modern offices we no longer sit at individual desks. The table is a dynamic workplace where we can have an informal chat with a colleague, hot-desk, settle down for an important meeting, discuss the weekend over a cup of coffee, or lunch together in order to relax. Modern offices have a domestic feel, whereby the table provides the hub in terms of collaboration, communication, coming together and sharing knowledge.
Working in the living space
Our habits have also changed at home. Whilst we previously had a separate kitchen, dining room and living room, our homes are increasingly one open plan space with the ‘living table’ as its centre. The heart of the home. The time when tables were just for lavish dinners has long passed. Now they are there for all the activities that take place on and around the table. It’s the place where you eat together, work from home, but also read the newspaper, do homework or play a game.
