Arc Table

Recommended Posts

Guest kekata

Long time no posts from me here :D now i would like to show you some of my last products, starting with the Arc table

After 6 months of development and prototyping, ARC table is now in production - in metal and wood. Detailed information here: www.pured.co.uk - my design studio web page.

Main idea behind the design is to have only one and the same detail - ARC :D

The table was shown at 100% design and accumulated a lot of nice comments - especially the wooden version.

Q&Q are welcome!

Thank you :)

The wood is beech, produced at really high level - no chemicals and stuff - only water based solvents... actually hte factory is working for IKEA :)

The mass production was in the core of this design, that was really my poiint :)

beech ...i see.....sorry for being really blank when it comes to wood.....do u have to varnish it ..to protect it from corrosion or is it somewhere on the range of rose wood ....were a super finsh will do???

 

I dont know if u dwell into the manufacturing realm.. but method r u thinking of for bending the pipes a pipe bending machine or hydraulic press...?? P.S.- Hydraulic press can be really economical solution.

 

Apart form that a good set of fool proof jigs will solve all ur manu. problems.....

 

lol.....i know ..ur probably thinking ...wtf......i am tool geek ....

Yes, you need to varnish the wood.

They are using pipe bending machine to manufacture the arcs, and use some tooling for the holes.

i love this design!

 

the metal one looks really elegant and stylish

 

i also like the natural colour of the wood, and it goes really well with glass. however i think the wood is a little bit too thick.

 

does it have to be that thick to be strong enough for a table?

Very nice design. I realy like the curved and angular shape of the wood and its natural color.

The metal version looks a bit cheap and crude. Espesially the fastnings that are used. I think it would improve if the screws lay flush with the pipes.
