Foster+Partner's Arc of triumph


The Molteni&C Dada's Flagship London Store was officially launched during the London Design Festival.

The new centre for this well-known Italian company includes both contemporary furniture company Molteni&C and top-end Dada kitchens.

Molteni&C has a legacy of working with the best contemporary international designers and during the London Design Festival, Molteni&C unveiled a new collaborative work with one of the UK's foremost designers Foster+Partners, adding to their existing collections in the Molteni&C stable.

Foster+Partners has designed a dining table named Arc, inspired by the temporary fabric structures, which are increasingly used in contemporary architectural design, and here shape the base of this soft, fluid table.

The base, made of an innovative material composed by cement and organic fibre, is both resistant and elastic at the same time, and lends itself to complex structures.

It is also waterproof, and the mass-coloured base in white and two tones of grey, ensures the colour stays fresh throughout its lifespan. These materials allow the tale to be used outside.

Arc complements its base with tempered glass tops, either 140 or 150 cm in diameter, in extra light and smoked finishes.
