Concrete table

Designed by Foster and Partners for Molteni, Arc is a beautiful table suitable for both indoors and outdoors thanks to the use of a composite material made of cement and organic fibres that is waterproof.

But what I like most about it is the strong architectural character; the sculptural tense-structures inspired shapes are fluid and visually lightweight, yet structurally resistant, and the choice of material with its rough concrete texture is rather unique in the furniture world.

    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
