Arco

Comissioned

Family-run company Arco has been designing and producing tables and matching items of furniture at its own production facilities in Winterswijk in the Netherlands since 1904. The company’s core values are genuine craftsmanship, sustainability and innovation.

Arco has a long-term vision based on local production. An excellent example of this is its “Local Wood” collection, where Arco works across the supply chain with partners from the region, from sourcing the raw material through sawmill processing to in-house pro- duction. As well as producing its standard range, the company owned factory also speci- alizes in bespoke furniture. This is how Apple ended up with Arco. In 2017 Arco made an important contribution to the furniture for the new head office of Apple in California.

The photo’s above show a couple of assignments I did for Arco combined. The staged pho- to’s are made by Teun van Beers, me and ‘RAW Color’ Design Studio.
